IF ONLY WE COULD

Love to get hitched
So relatives can't bitch
White lies tend to itch
Torn hearts can't be stitched

If only we could
Do what we wanted to do
If only we could
Be who we are
Deep in the thick if it
Liking how you sit
If only we could

Static cling a nuisance
What the hell conclusive
Void of respect and abusive
So now we remain seclusive

Thighs of Europe chasing
Goldie Locks tosses a flip
Red wine attempts to grip
We sought shelter way under

If only we could
Wrestle until we got through
If only we could
Be who we are
Held captive sip by sip
Loving how you row
If only we could

Love to get hitched
So relatives can't bitch
White lies tend to itch
Broken hearts enriched

If only we could
Twin arrows reveal the truth
If only we could
Be who we are
Bound to fact and fiction
Stride for stride who wins
If only we could
