14 today and you went dancing
And boys can be so insecure
Everything's a blur of feel and touch
How can you be sure enough
23 today and all your friends are getting married
So self righteously you march though teachers college
Seems like everybody's so content to move so slow
And when you think you've got your life so well controlled
And the years like raindrops falling from your life are
You're so brilliant, you're so gifted, so sensitive, so strong
But no one got close enough to you to have ever heard
I met you at a party you were drunk and full of world advice
You said you had a child who was a genius and you smiled
Someone whispered you were 39 today a face so you
You collapsed into the corner
With your verbs
You said over and over
Children come home from school
Shut em out fast before you think of the past
Go to bed got to sleep don't think don't feel
That maybe somewhere deep inside
