B.. Alexander


Purpose - Poem by B.. Alexander

My car stands motionless in the drive-way
But I still don't know how to drive it
That guitar is propped against it's amp
But I still don't know how to play it
And my lover, she lies there in the bedroom
But I...

My chess set's collecting dust below the fire
But I still don't know what the rules are
That fishing rod looms above the bait box
But I still don't know the technique
And my lover, she lies there in the bedroom
But I...

What am I for?
When I don't know how to love her
When I don't know how to let her
Love me back
What am I for?
What am I for?

So I'll keep buying toys
And promising I'll master them
When really there's no joy
In anything, anymore...
