WORDS

I HOPE I’M WRONG

Holding on to this red thread,

with you on the other end.

And the space between us, deep and black.

 

Once I had a perfect life,

Sunny blue skies all the time.

Should've felt the omens at my back.

 

Panic thunders in my veins.

As I do my best to explain that I’m probably right.

But I hope I’m wrong.

 

When the music played like this.

When you leaned in for a kiss.

When our bodies moved while our minds just dreamed.

 

When the hungry dog won’t bite.

When the meanest drunk won’t fight.

And a collar knot dangles from a beam.

 

Panic thunders in my veins.

As I do my best to explain that I’m probably right.

But I hope I’m wrong.

 

I know how you talk, but keep this underneath your hat.

Maybe someone else, but you’d never do a thing like that.

 

I’m in a fix. I’m in a spot.

Precious is the rage I’ve got.

And obsequescence in my trembling hands.

Panic thunders in my veins.

As I do my best to explain that I’m probably right.

Yes, I'm probably right.

I'm probably right.

But I hope I’m wrong.
