lyrics

You can fire your choicest smile in my direction
You can try and catch my eye across the street
You can hope to re-establish a connection
You can grumble that your life is incomplete

You can run
You can cry
You can shout into the sky
You can squeeze a year of hurt into a day
You can try saying hello
Visit places where I go
There’s a price that you will always have to pay

You can hire the Philharmonic to serenade me
You can write my name in smoke across the sky
You can plant a thousand roses in my garden
I will always look straight through you til I die

You can wave from afar
You can flicker like a star
But you’ll never see the world as it must be
You can search for the past
For something that couldn’t last
There will never be a path from you to me

You can sit in the congregation
You can wonder if the Lord is on your side
You can think back to that conversation
When our friendship finally petered out and died

You can fill your life with other peoples' wisdom
You can flaunt your stolen poems every day
I will blow it all apart, this appropriated art
You’re an empty soul with nothing much to say

With her baby
She's a baby
On her hands and knees
Trying to be a mother
So she can have another
I've got to leave
