For years we played the same parts
In this ever ending game of chess
Both so afraid to make the move
Yearned for more but wanted less

Unwilling to make that crucial step
A leap for humankind
Unlock the keys to life and love
A groundhog day so blind

Sustained attempts to be unique
Yet we always remained so square
The world itself was rushing by
Without the most damn care

Seasons came and went
The snow became the sun
Our feet rooted to the ground
Even the toddlers learned to run

Eventually, the answer came
We drifted far apart
The time it waits for no one
Not even the beating of a heart
