Puzzled By People

Album: Computers And Blues (2011)
  • Love is the answer.

    I'm pretty good at puzzles but puzzled by people
    And I don't trouble trouble and trouble don't trouble me.
    Stare at the paper, fold it in two
    Facing the walls are the soles of my shoes.

    Sometimes you have to find out for yourself.
    Sometimes you need to be told.
    Sometimes you never find the answer.

    We never had a crossword (crossed word)
    My words got lost and you never heard
    I'm 2 (too) down you're one across the room
    Beginning with I and ending in U
    Beginning in my eye and ending as an X
    Leaves a bad taste in my mouth
    To think of you again like the bad taste leaking from the ink in my pen
    Doodle at the side as I do to life
    Choosing to lose time instead of doing what I like
    Starts off black and white and lacking in life
    Until pen in blue lends it a hue.

    Puzzled by people
    Loving isn't easy
    You can't google the solutions to people's feelings

    Sometimes you have to find out for yourself.
    Sometimes you need to be told.
    Sometimes you never find the answer.

    Chewing on the pen
    2 down again
    Not enough letters for the clue in my head
    Lost in thought, never been there before
    With the turn of a pun on the tip of my tongue
    The freshest memory will fail to recall
    As well as the messiest, faded scrawl

    Love is the answer.

    Puzzled by people
    Loving isn't easy
    You can't google the solutions to people's feelings

    Sometimes you have to find out for yourself.
    Sometimes you need to be told.
    Sometimes you never find the answer. Writer/s: Edward May, Michael Geoffrey Skinner
