Bought and Sold

You woke up one day

and you wanted to say

I’m sick of this game now

I don’t wanna play

But then you realized

you didn’t know any other game

so now you’re stuck in

your outgrown frame

 

When all is bought

and all is sold

you just wish to be

nine years old

 

You looked in glasses

you looked between legs

then you tried to

look in your head

You don’t wanna stay here

you don’t wanna go

what you want with your life now

you don’t really know

 

When all is bought

and all is sold

you just wish to be

nine years old

 

Let’s hide in this wardrobe

it’s quiet and still

don’t know if it’ll help us

we pretend that it will

I stroke your forehead

and then you stroke mine

and we sit here together

and try to forget time

 

Close your eyes

and hear me say

everything

will be okay
