just people

let’s pretend that didn’t happen

or better yet — pretend we never met

start all over again

with a handshake and a how do you do

making it the case

that there’s nothing not to understand

i can forget if i feel like it

but your face came to mind’s eye today

and i had to think again

tell me you can let go and smile

and i won’t worry anymore

the rain will be mine again

tell me you can live beyond the past

outside the walls and over the hill

i can’t be more than i am

so let’s forget whatever i was thinking

and just be what we were before

people with a lot or little in common

cage-free, claim free
