I Want to Feel As If I Ever Mattered (Draft 1)

It Could Maybe Possibly Be Could If Any Bird Would Sing For Me

I’d love to buy my love song
if the fountain conspiracy would
charge me as a friend of you

I know how much you listen
know how much you care.

They can give me as a musical reference
because I have died so many times, and

wanted to revive in the fields of you

so much wanted to grow

so much wanted to know
why you were over there

and I was over here

seems like there’d be music
if the Sun would dance with the Moon.
