Not Today – Hour Four

Think of a team name you say –

‘We’ll be inseparable from that day

I want us to be as tight as a rope

I want you to be my handler

My friend and my hope

I’m barely indulging at all these days –

Practically clean

And I love you bumhead’ …

That’s what you said.

 

Think of a team name you say –

But whatever is the point

When we both know it will always escape your memory

But never your lips

That it’ll just be a forgotten ceremony

On one of your trips

And you’ll roll up a joint

Just to take the edge off

And forget what you said.

 

Think of a team name you say –

And I want to do the whole thing –

Team colours to wear and a team song to sing

A motto, a mascot –

But you do this a lot –

Get me to dream

By mentioning things you only temporarily mean

I wait for the comedown to start

And brace my still-high heart.

 

Think of a team name you say

And I don’t want to –

Not today.’
