lyrics

You were five years ahead of me
And a lifetime apart
And I know I'll never ever see
Into your heart of darkness
There's a blackness over my mind
When I realize
You and I will never have the time
All the conversations, confirmations
Validations that I will never receive
Or just a simple benediction
For a man down on his knees

And though I wrap my mind around your art
Still I never believe
That I was any closer to you
Or you to me

Like a cowboy you headed west
Herding the groupies from town to town
But they were blind to your colors
They mistook you for a prophet
Or a four-letter clown

And I can touch, I can possess
The mere evidence of your trespass
But I can't keep anything I take
And picking up everything you drop
Has been my worst mistake

And though I wrap my mind around your art
Still I never believe
That I was any closer to you
Or you to me
