Shoe Song.

I must admit
your shoes are pretty small
I thought they’d fit
but they don’t fit at all

(I must admit
you must be pretty tall.
Your shoes are big
I wear them trip and fall)

I wore your heels
to quick take out the trash
but my sense
of balance didn’t last

(I wore your boots
to help me slay a roach
which in the end
was not the best approach)

I walked a mile to get to your house in the cold
I walked a mile and I think I’m getting old

I will confess
I think that you were right
and that we won’t
won’t make it through the night

(I will confess
I think that I was wrong
and that we just
might make it if we’re strong)

Your eyes they say
they see into my soul
Just know it’s not
something you can control

(Your eyes they say
they won’t look long on me
You know I can’t
can’t help but disagree)

I said that you could have my jacket if you’re cold
It’s pretty warm even though it’s very old

My feet are tired
from standing at your door
I’m pretty sure
that you’re worth waiting for

(My feet are tired
from dragging all night long
I followed you
your directions were wrong)

My heart is tired
but still it starts to sink
raising it up
is harder than you’d think

(My heart is tired
from beating out of sync
when yours beats hard
I feel mine start to shrink)

You’ll never know what it looks like in my head
so ill draw a simple diagram instead

I don’t much care
if it’s cloth or leather
some differences
they help hold us together

(I don’t much care
zipper clasp or lace
just so long as
everything stays in place)

I’ll walk with you
in shoes or stocking feet
when you draw near
my journey is complete

(I’ll walk with you
through trees and ocean spray
and keep your pace
‘till you send me away)

I’m asking if you have a place to lay your head
perhaps you’d like to use my shoulder instead

I walked a mile to get to your house in the cold
I walked a mile and I think I’m getting old

(I said that you could have my jacket if you’re cold
It’s pretty warm even though it’s very old)

You’ll never know what it looks like in my head
so ill draw a simple diagram instead

(I’m asking if you have a place to lay your head
perhaps you’d like to use my shoulder instead)

I must admit
your shoes don’t fit at all
