Reinvented

“If in youth you weren’t so ripe with wisdom I would have never have taken a bite.”

“If you had been engaged in some endeavour bittersweet I would have let you be.”

“If you needed shelter I would have given, you know I wouldn’t want you to blight.”

“If after a kiss you sought affirmation I’d give it to a lesser degree.”

Look at me. I’ve become eternity;

Forbidden Fruit sacrificed on a spit

Cooked by three, succumbed to fraternity.

Oh, God, please help me overcome these crimes.

Oh, God, please help me remember these times.

“If you wanted me to depart then why did you linger with laughter in the dark?”

“If you weren’t so firm in body and flexed in your mind I’d not be tempted to fall.”

“If I had known I was coming on too strong I’d not have been such a fierce white shark.”

“If you really wanted my words, you’d have given me some letters or a phone call.”

Look at me. I’ve become eternity;

Forbidden Fruit sacrificed on a spit

Cooked by three, succumbed to fraternity.

Oh, God, please help me overcome these crimes.

Oh, God, please help me remember these times.

“If you hadn’t have hungered for my scraps of success I’d have given you plenty.”

“If you had thought that that was big you should’ve stuck around to stroke my big, big Ego.”

“If you had been a little less I’d have cared more and I don’t say that to many.”

“If it even matters, I think about you and there’s no request that I’d veto.”

Look at me. I’ve become eternity;

Forbidden Fruit sacrificed on a spit

Cooked by three, succumbed to fraternity.

Oh, God, please help me overcome these crimes.

Oh, God, please help me remember these times.
