Do You Know

Why do people say “Later”

When they know they will never see you again

I wrote another song yesterday

It was about you again

You’ll never read the words

You don’t even like my music

Do you know what I did today

Do you know what I made for breakfast

Do you know my heart

I thought I heard a red bird’s song in the tree outside my window

Maybe it was a cardinal

I don’t know

But it’s song was pretty

Do you know that I think about you

Do you know what I know

What a silly question

Do you know my thoughts

Do you know my feelings

Do you know my regrets

Do you know my heart?
