The Cattle Call of the Would​-​Be

from by Kleenex Girl Wonder



Without much fuss, the great could just be good A just-missed bus, opportunity knocks on wood As the line grows longer, everyone looks around A mess of lost children, hoping that they won't be found And the bells all come out at nighttime, when we can breathe A sigh of relief, and sneak a smile under our teeth For we know that the end is inevitable and so near We could have been something but love is the one thing we fear And the sweetest tune our hearts can hear
