about

My answer to the following challenge:
"Write lyrics that spell out a word (or two). Examples: "Respect" (Otis Redding/Aretha Franklin), "Gloria" (Van Morrison), "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" (Tammy Wynette), "Lola" (The Kinks)."

I think this turned out pretty nice.

LYRICS:

I thought we would do better
I sure know we once did
Now look at that disaster
marked up in red ink

And it just shows the awkward truth
Is this the best that we can do?

When did we unlearn?
When did the tables turn?
Shouldn't we be concerned
when "love" spells A-P-A-T-H-Y
What's been on our minds?
How could we be so blind?
You should know it can't be right
when "together" spells A-L-O-N-E

The test of time is tricky
And it gets harder every year
There are no second chances
We didn't know how to prepare

Now we are running low on time
We don't think before we write

How's it come to this
can't believe what we missed
is it just thoughtlessness
when "love" comes with an S-E-L-F
How could it escape our eyes
How couldn't we realize
something can't be right
when "sex" spells T-V

When did we unlearn?
When did the tables turn?
Shouldn't we be concerned
when "love" spells A-P-A-T-H-Y
What's been on our minds?
How could we be so blind?
You should know it can't be right
when "together" spells A-L-O-N-E
We can't go on this way
we should re-evaluate
We are bound to fail
when "we" spells I
