Something's Wrong

from by B. McCormick



Something’s wrong I don’t know what to do
I’ve been trying to stay together but I’m running out of glue
My heart is a hole in the floor of a canoe
I was hoping I’d have more to give
To you

Something’s wrong but only all the time
And pleasure is a penny but I nickel and I time
I feel like a million cents, maybe twenty-five
You looked at me I couldn’t hide
Behind a sly remark, No witty quips
I’m made of glass, it makes me sick

Something’s wrong even when it’s not
Even on the river what a bottle and a rock
The bottom of my brain is asking what I got
I was trying to tell you it meant
A lot
To me
