It’s overcast
She’s lonely
Wants to phone him
But she won’t
Saying “Why can’t I
Forget him?
Can anyone be free?"
In the floor of his corner office
He clutched his chest and winced
Convinced he would seal no more deals
He turned to dark thoughts and he wept

Why do we hide from the truth?
And stay in these roles?
They don’t fit
We’re misfits
We wanna go

Learn to love ourselves again
Become ourselves again

I peered into my office
At the pile of papers there
Wondered why I
Even do this
Is this even me?
And so we all can be impostors
To ourselves and what we want
Why avoid the best choice offered?
And settle later on less?
