3. Slapback

When I find the time I will tell you again
please be careful with what you don’t wish for
And it may seem kind of unkind I presume
but it helps me when I just can’t sleep

When you were born
the world stopped spinning for ten minutes
so since then
the timing never seemed right
like a tape that plays too slow to a movie track
your lips going too soon
voice going too fast
And the melody meant to set the mood
won’t quite
