“Never Gonna Happen”

Never Gonna Happen

©2014 Larry Krone

 

Hope is such a basic thing

Such a basic thing that I just feel

Expecting better days and better times

And wounds to heal

 

You taught me, I thought you taught me

To value a true friend

A person who really talks to me

Works out problems getting closer in the end

 

But oh, I made a big mistake

I really fucked up expecting the best from you

I never should have trusted you

To be a grown up able to talk things through

 

Now I know – hope doesn’t always work

Some things just turn out bad

For example, I’ll never make you understand

Feel like I’ve been heard no matter how much time we have

 

I didn’t realize that I had it in my head that someday we’d be sitting side by side and all the words would come and you and I would have a new understanding for each other

 

But I see now that my fantasy won’t likely come to life because I’ll always be too angry and you’ll always be too dumb so my goal now is to simmer down and change what I want from my mother

 

I always thought that we’d work things out

But I’d better get used to how things are now

 

It’s never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna ever gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna ever gonna happen.

 

Someday you’re gonna die

I just can’t believe you’re satisfied

 

It’s never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna ever gonna happen never gonna happen never gonna ever gonna happen.
