Well I love no one and I don't care who knows
Don't care if you're far away, don't give a damn if you're close
I'm the vacant distraction of a broken old man
I lack shape or color, not even gray or even tan

I'd hate all I see but it makes me too tired
I'm much more at home when left uninspired
So damn me to hell and resist if you must
But lower your eyes once and I'll emerge from the dust

For I am nothing
Yes I am nothing
Yes I am nothing
And I love no one
Yes I love no one

Well I love everyone I am filled with delight
I understand all your feelings, I don't see from wrong or right
I'm the look in your eyes when you're telling the truth
I'm the wisdom of age and the beauty of youth

I am shape substance color darkest black palest white
Speckled gond ringing mirror, sharp soft and bright
I'm rage passion laughter and the need to know why?
Come sample all my riches, I'm pure stimuli

For I am everything
Yes I am everything
Yes I am everything
And I love everyone
Under the sun

Well I can only love someone I am just a person
My father loved my mother and I am her son
The preceding verses are the halves of my soul
I'm just the battlefield and that is my role

There's a tug of war between what I can and can't feel
The inevitable compromise, determines the real
The equation the reason for my being here
The struggle resulting in my invention of the tear

For I'm only something
Yes I'm only something
Yes I'm only something
And I can only love someone

And it's the best I can do
It's the very best I can do
You're probably someone too
So perhaps I love you
Perhaps you'll love me too
Perhaps you'll love me too
Perhaps you'll love me too

POPPER, JOHN C.
