i'm not from here
but sometimes I was
i can say that i loved her
and perhaps she loved me
but i was not the who
I thought i was
and
apparently
neither was she

i'm not from here
but my roots
call my name
from here
from sidewalks
buildings
routinely life
performs its concerts here
where i'm not from
although sometimes i was

there is a certain here in this here
that I'm not from
where i was a self i did not know i was not
and she was someone i did not know myself

who has not taken advil for those awful headaches

in this hereΒ Β that i'm not from
but sometimes i was
i decline to believe i cannot be from here tomorrow
if i once was but was not
why can't i tomorrow just be
from here because sometimes i was

I'm not from here, I know, yet
it looms so near
and she
well
she is not from here either
although she sometimes was

i thought i loved her
and perhaps she loved me
but neither she not I
were from this profound here
that sings dances and laughs

i'm not from here
although sometimes
i was
i can say that i loved her
and perhaps
she did love me

but i'm really not from here
although sometimes i was
