Just a little something I wrote a couple of years ago, for no particular reason. Enjoy!
Waking up in a panic
Late at night
A lucid dream
Still a wondrous fright.
An exchange of vows
We tied the knot
But now I just beg
And my knees are shot.

Oooh, what can I do?
I live my life vicariously through you.

Echoes of laughter
Ring in my ear
Repeating things that I don't want to hear.
And now you're gone but you won't disappear
Let it all blow away.

We don't want to age
Yet we don't want to die
In either event, it ends with a cry.
So I sit and drink
And feel sorry for myself
And take the pain out on somebody else.
As the birds they chirp
And the babies scream
Still it's so much better than what it seems
So wake me up from this daunting dream.

Oooh, what can I do?
I live my life vicariously through you.

Echoes of laughter
Ring in my ear
Repeating things that I don't want to hear
And now you're gone but you won't disappear
Let it all blow away.

So excuse me if my words are too loud
They might make you stronger
Though they won't make you proud.
And the songs won't play
If you don't hear them through.
If you waltz around and stare in a daze
A straight, clear path becomes a complicated maze
As the sun disappears with its fiery rays.

Oooh, what can I do?
I live my life vicariously through you.

Echoes of laughter
Ring in my ear
Repeating things that I don't want to hear
And now you're gone but you won't disappear
Let it all blow away.
