And I don’t know if I can do it

Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms
