Wisdom

Wisdom

 

Wisdom is vanity

Just like u

Comes before v

And I know my alphabet

Just like you

Seem to know me

 

And no matter what

No matter what the people say

The people say

I want to be with you anyway

I want to be with you always

 

Now when I say always

You know I mean forever

But not every moment of the day

Because then we'd lose our lustre

And our inner sense of individuality

Forsaken identities

You know I love the me in you

And the you in me

But I need the you in you

Just like I need the me in me

 

But no matter what

No matter what the people say

The people say

I want to be with you anyway

I want to be with you always

 

Wisdom is vanity

Just like u

Comes before v

And that which has been

Is that which shall be

And that which has been done

Is that which shall be done

There is no new thing

Under the sun

 

A time to live a time to die

A time to laugh a time to cry

A time for young a time for old

A time to be held a time to hold

A time for black a time for white

A time for day a time for night

A time for peace a time for war

A time to open and close the door

A time to move a time to wait

A time to love a time to hate

A time for wild a time for tame

A time for obscurity a time for fame

No matter what

No matter what the people say

The people say

I want to be with you anyway

I want to be with you always
