forever.

Not talkin’ ’bout a year, no not three or four,
I don’t want that kind of forever in my life anymore.
Forever always seems to be around when it begins,
But forever never seems to be around when it ends.

People spend so much time, every single day
Runnin’ ’round all over town giving their forever away.
But no not me, I won’t let my forever roam,
And now I hope I can find my forever a home.

Like a handless clock with numbers, an infinite of time,
No not the forever found, only in the mind.
Forever always seems to be around when things begin,
But forever never seems to be around when things end.

Ben Harper
(circa 1993)
