Projectile

Fired from a gun
Toward the sun
Laughing and wired
Shot through the air
We passed so near
My perfect flyer

[refrain]
Oh, projectile
We passed by while
Life went on around us
Missed chances of
Oh, promised love
Gravity downed us

Imperfect aim
And all the same
We never struck
A near miss
We never kissed
Oh, curse our luck

[refrain]

[bridge]
And while I never met you
I always let you
Get inside myself
An’ we two were
But one fewer
I’d need no one else
And if only
I were not so lonely
Would not lament your stealth
And were you here
We’d be so dear
But you’re somewhere else

And if we had hit one another
We would explode upon each other
Blaze unfathomed, other lovers
They would weep to see each other
Ignited, nothing else could smother
Our desire for the other
And the world could never cover
This perfection

Fired separate
Accelerate
And never hit
We came so close
Much more than most
But were not it

[refrain]
Oh, projectile
We passed by while
Life went on around us
Missed chances of
Oh, promised love
Gravity downed us
