Lyrics:
(c) 08.27.2018 time and ink

verse 1

they regifted their child
to the world at large
gave him back to the universe
they gave him up
to the sink and the surge
to fathom which was worse.

verse 2

it had come to the point
that the whirl was too much
he was drifting in a dervish
they watched as he
traded his pull for push
and it made them really nervous.

verse 3

knew the time had come
had to cut him loose
it seems time was calling them
and they needed return
to the here and now
that existed alongside him.

CHORUS 1:

oh, everyone wonders how it could have been
but nobody really does it
in the end i guess they just couldn't pretend
it was
something that (it) wasn't.

verse 4

then they came to the point
it was they cut adrift
they'd
lost the best part of themselves
they said to themselves
it wasn't their fault
it was a lie that they could sell.

verse 5

found as they went on with
their lives, they were haunted
like
that makes it right-- it doesn't
all this because
in the end they found they wanted
something that wasn't.

CHORUS 2:

oh, everyone wonders how it could have been
but nobody really does it
in the end they found they just couldn't pretend
it was
something that (it) wasn't.

BRIDGE:

some people shouldn't be parents
some people haven't awareness
some do nothin but commence fussin
all about something that wasn't.
