Failed Attempt at Trying

And I was listening to country fusion
Driving a little faster than I ought from the Souplantation to home
Allowing my mind to suspend above lived experience to fantasy
Funny how these isolated moments puncture my misery just enough to inspire this
All lights then turned green, as I exit the freeway, wishing they were red,
So I could have just one more moment a teeny bit closer to happy
And it was Robert on my mind as my head hit the pillow
Typical, I suppose that the woman struggling to maintain control should be ever
So slightly distracted by the ex-boyfriend who never even loved her.
That, and I gave up on reality just long enough to wish to dream
Just one smile did it, but it was never about the boy
