SOMETIMES I FORGET YOU'RE JUST A GIRL

sometimes I forget you're just a girl
you're not a mountain or an angel
you're not an answer that I lost long ago
you are not the pain that I feel in my brain
you are just a girl
sometimes i forget that the legs that i see
in the slit of the bedroom door are just legs
and the hands that touch my hands are just hands
its so hard
sometimes i forget he's just a child
and I'm an old man with no plan
i don't know man what the world is all about
but i wont be afraid
to watch a young man change
while i stay the same
you're skin and you're blood and you're bones
you fall down but you choose life
it's not hard
