Great Expectations

from by Quiet Hounds



I see you talking while your
lips keep on moving while there’s
something else on my mind
don’t hate me

While on my clean white collar
I bet you one more dollar
deceptively I’ll find
you can’t see

Saddle up the strong horse
looking back no remorse
Can’t believe we missed that page
...the wrong stage
Read me back that first line
say again one more time
could it be this war we wage
is in my head...

Oh so stranded, lost though I’m branded
dear friend we’re not aligned (out of time… time)

It was a great vibration
where the walls between us grew
and your expectations
were the farthest from the truth

I think hurt my body
broken without colliding
I didn't drink think that much,
it pains me.

And so you’re educated
maybe admit too jaded
under the lemon tree
you wake me
