i dont think i can figure you out

i dont think i can figure you out

let it be known i dont know you that well

are you ocean bliss or poor flopping trout?

i have my doubts

 

i dont think i can figure you out

let it be known i dont know you that well

love or cool hate youre revolving around?

i have my doubts

 

is it you or i that builds brick by brick

a wall monumental, ineffably thick

rivers between us too savage to swim

we jump across safely, but landings dont stick

 

or could it be both of us playing these tricks

only one taste of a bite or a lick

spending the night, forgetting theres day

the night treats us well, because thats when we drink

 

something, we feel but do not talk about

because honest to god one of us might get hurt

and truths never easy to wrap head around

when theres two – to seal truth – one must come forward first

 

time to stop trying to figure you out

to me youre the bliss and the love, not the trout

but if you told me youre the trout and the hate

id respond to you saying i still feel the same

 

the felt can be known & the known can be felt

so next time i see you, theres no need to talk
