What She Took

A rose garden knows what to do
Being alone doesn’t mean having to hide
What’s up what’s going on
Aren’t questions to make a beauty confide

A bottle with an old dry cork
No matter how hard it is to pull
What’s inside is what’s past
What you drink is a memory full

Just hang on to what you got
Nature doesn’t remember what you forgot
You can find yourself if you look
Just look around
Just look around
And forget what it is she took

Dancing on the porch
The moon is entertained
What you do is what you do
When you sleep you can be ashamed

Smelling a rose but leaving it on the vine
Drinking a tall glass full of old wine
You know she’s out there somewhere
But you drink enough and you won’t care

Just hang on to what you got
Nature doesn’t remember what you forgot
You can find yourself if you look
Just look around
Just look around
And forget what it is she took

Interesting. My favorite line is "A bottle with an old dry cork," because I liked the visual it released.

Hi ytsenoh - thank you for commenting. It's the real thing and the metaphor I guess... it's old and past and you still want to drink it.
