9. TRAMPOLINE

up all night, counting sheep

kicking legs and grinding teeth

you were singing in your sleep

“man, I don’t know what to believe,

I don’t know about you and me”

 

what made you strange at 17

will make you sad at 33

“It ain’t the same” you said to me

“and I don’t know what came between,

I don’t know about you and me”

 

and if you’re aching for a change

I’ll drill a hole into your brain

watch it spiral down the drain

’til no memory or chemistry remains

 

every night, the strangest dream

where I chase you and you chase me

swimming circles ‘round the sea

’til our eyes are full of salt and turning green

and the bottom drops out of the trampoline

and we’re back to the beginning you and me
