lyrics

The possible forks in my road are fewer
I’d be surprised if I ever owned my own restaurant
Or published a book on habits of whale sharks

I’m just the sum of unfulfilled potentials
The unexplored shelves of muscles I left
Tucked up with a musty tome that depressed me
But also uplifted
Like "if I can feel this sad
Stick a fork in my own back
Then I must be an artist!"

I was up next at the am dram poetry slam
Silhouetted in the wings
But skipping out home
Missed my cue on stage left
Cos she cleft me open
With a tale of a lost letter
I couldn’t compete with my hokey token
Stanza of male defeat

Whatever we had going
Ain't showing anymore
Where there used to be laughter
Now there's only pain

I’ve known you for ten years Terry
I never knew you could juggle
But then I've swung from anchorite
In an unvisited cell
To louche lout out on the town every night
I swear I’ve never smiled so wide
And your large-eyed kids squeaked with delight
You an eating an apple in a 3-ball trick
What have I missed?

Whatever we had going
Ain't showing anymore
Where there used to be laughter
Now there's only pain
