You're not yours 

My heart aches tonight for a wee soul gone too soon; for those that feel alone and without community and purpose, for the most sensitive among us. We are living in dark times of collective and personal grief and isolation; open wounds around every corner.  Tread lightly, be generous and forgive.,.. most of all, forgive yourself.  Be heroically kind. Reach out tirelessly to those with a distant look on their face. There is no time like the present.  

"The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up" ~  Mark Twain


You're not yours

Wrap me me in paper, c'mon
Wrap me in cellophane
Leave me on the corner,
Cause it's where you think I stay
Waiting for you
Cause I adore you, it's true
I do

But I'm a runner, lord knows
I'm the smoking gun and
 
You're not Yours and I'm not mine

I'm your mirror
I'm your fear of her
I'm the void
I'm an old fashioned toy
Boy, I'm a princess 
but I don't wanna get saved
I wanna surrender
Dressed as the court jester

You're not yours and I'm not mine
We'd see it in the stars,
If we could find them
There's nothing more
But to sweep the floor
That can be done
Tonight.

It's the old woman,
Whose beauty never fades
It's the perfect thing
You forgot to say
And my wee one,
With his toes in the earth
It's the ancient tree
Forever giving birth

It's not yours and you're not mine

It's a long story for a tall glass
It's the question you wished you never asked
Now that you know is it easy
Can you let it go?
Now that you know, c'mon baby just you just
Let it go.

You're not yours and I'm not mine

We'd see it in the stars, if we could find them
There's nothing more
But to sweep the floor that can be done 

Tonight.

Wrap me me in paper, c'mon 
Wrap me in cellophane 
Leave me on the corner, 
Cause it's where you think I stay 
Waiting for you 
Cause I adore you,
I do,
I do
And I would do it again

But
I'm not yours and
you're not mine
