I wish I knew Ragy
That person who lives in me
And has my name
Sometimes I wake and see him go
I ask him why
His look means we don’t share the aim

He sets me in motion
And I set him reeling back
We know the cause and the case
But one of us sets in emotion
When the other’s mind has to crack
And there we are potion but no pace

He comes back at night
And asks what went wrong
And my answer is always mute
How can I be wrong when I’m right
How can I think so for so long
And what endeavours can I now refute?

I’ve known the child, known the teen
And the adult who came through
Now I don’t know who I am
After all that we’ve done and seen
You don’t know me, I don’t know you
Yet in each other we’re crammed

Who is this Ragy
And why is his name of value
He’s the human next door with a life
One day he will leave
And just the name will stay
Man, is Ragy and his story really brief!

I wish I knew Ragy

That person who lives in me

And has my name

Sometimes I wake and see him go

I ask him why

His look means we don’t share the aim

 

He sets me in motion

And I set him reeling back

We know the cause and the case

But one of us sets in emotion

When the other’s mind has to crack

And there we are potion but no pace

 

He comes back at night

And asks what went wrong

And my answer is always mute

How can I be wrong when I’m right

How can I think so for so long

And what endeavours can I now refute?

 

I’ve known the child, known the teen

And the adult who came through

Now I don’t know who I am

After all that we’ve done and seen

You don’t know me, I don’t know you

Yet in each other we’re crammed

 

Who is this Ragy

And why is his name of value

He’s the human next door with a life

One day he will leave

And just the name will stay

Man, is Ragy and his story really brief!
