Some Other Morning Someone Else Will Know

Some other morning
someone else will know
they'll be calling out your name
they'll be mumbling way down low
to the tune of a Nick Drake tune
and the glue of somebody else's love will fix your picture frame
but it'll still hang crooked like a politician moon
and I'll be many miles away, trying and failing to shoulder the blame
on some other morning someone else will know
how to fix your antenna so your true blue light will show

Some other sucker
on somebody else's vine
dying for a little commitment
dying to put in just a little time
taping together broken light bulbs
to shine scattered light above your head something magnificent
but still you have no idea how this flag unfolds
and I'll be staring at my Chucks in a 7-11 choking on resentment
here's some other sucker on somebody else's vine
he's driving you too damn fast and ignoring all the signs

Some other morning
someone else will know
they'll be writing your epitaph
they'll carve it into your bones
and fish for meaning in you
and the joke that is somebody else's love will make you laugh
but still I'd kill to be in his size eleven shoes
and I'll be many miles away, trying and failing to clear a new path
on some other morning someone else will know
how to fix your antenna so your blue blue light will show

On some other morning someone else will know
how to decode your breakfast cereal mystery clues
all I know is how to ever so ungracefully lose
some other morning someone else will know
how to win with you, how to make your true blue light show
oh no
oh-oh no

On some other morning someone else will know...

Oh man that blue light shines so bright it's almost blinding.  

I just love your poetry even when it makes me cry.

Peace
