Just Trying To Meet You (single)

by Royal Chant

/

about

Fiction, frustration, & desperation in a furious poetic howl.

lyrics

Oh my god
this complicated
choreography
I’m just trying to meet you
just trying to meet you
in the halls
timing it wrong
making excuses
running out and into friends
I don’t want to see
it’s driving me crazy

I’m just trying to meet you

Hiding in a bathroom stall
scrounging around for scraps
of information
anything at all
once by accident
it’s never happened again
writing script after script
after script after script after script
in my head
rehearsing my lines
not getting it right
it’s driving me crazy

I’m just trying to meet you

I can’t sleep
I can’t eat
hand me my drink
set the stage
to strike me down again
for goodness sakes’
for goodness sake

For the love of god
this convoluted
sorry strategy
gets stranger every day
stranger with each passing day
I wait
and I wait
wringing my hands
and grinding down my teeth

I’m just trying to meet you
