so very obviously

so very obviously

that dream girl you dressed up to go out
and her dreamy smile
and her dreamed-of way of going about
how she dreams so in style
with her dreamlike manner of putting things
like a dream come true
and those dreams you can hear when she sings
all her dreaming of you
like the one i forgot
i know all the things i am
so very obviously not

she would always be where she'd been left
when you happened to come back
her words would be astonishingly deft
and her movements on track
no one'd have her nearly as much
no one'd know her real voice
more than anyone you'd feel her touch
as her touch earned your choice
as though it were sought
i know all the things i am
so very obviously not

so you'll also think this one's yours
like it's custom fit
except so does gwen claim it as hers
and a friend who's more used to it
and you and you too and him
and nearly everyone else
and given the shape i've been in
it might be to myself
though i'm not like you thought
i know all the things i am
so very obviously not
