Separate

Just like way back when

Long time ago

As a 5 year old girl

Wearing black patent leather Mary-Jane’s

She’s managed to look straight ahead

Her body is there

Her mind elsewhere

Her heart keeps beating

Keeping track of the time

She counts

Keeping everything

Separate

In little boxes

Categories

Placed just so

In certain ways

Best way she knows how

Separate

She got so used to

Living that way

Her body here

Her mind elsewhere

Her heart beating

Keeping track of time

As she’s counting

Everything

Separate

But now she’s all grown up

Wearing cowboy boots

Instead of Mary Jane’s

And she doesn’t talk much

About way back then

Long time gone

But every once in awhile

She gets a reminder

Flashback

Suddenly

That throws her off balance

Just enough

To make her

Separate

Her body here

Her mind elsewhere

Her heart beating

Keeping track

Until she can finally

Put everything back

Just so
