You Play Adult
All rights reserved
You’re laughing, babe. I like it.
Etched in planes, a face
Standstill at the staircase
Every door and stairway, an empty frame for years
Now we always reappear
We came to truth and called a truce
I know that and I would never hurt you
You were a child when we were together
Open and wide, slivered and tendered
If we had been owned we could have been ordered,
Without growing up, to make it together
Now you play adult when nobody’s looking
And it’s not my fault. It’s a born condition
Now look who’s laughing
Now we’re accomplished with things we have gained
What was the prize then when we were the game?
If we had known it back then before emotions set in
Fighting over stupid things. Trying to win, my friend.
Now we play adult when nobody’s looking
And there is no fault. It’s a born condition
Now we are laughing
