Twenty-Four

I am your unlucky number two
What did I ever do to you?
The first of nine
She’s one of a kind
Second-in-line
Yes, I fell behind

Who could love
you any more?
Who thinks of
you twenty-four…?

Seven days since. Can’t I leave you?
Many ways I can’t deal with you
Only eighteen
It feels like ages
Pictures, you’ve seen
Now read the pages

Who would live with you
twenty-four/…?
Who will say ‘I do,’
and be sure?

Now a couple of years have gone
We’ve gone separate ways, it’s wrong
Sometimes you’ll write
I recall our song
Hatred is right
But it burns too long

You’re twenty-going-on-four
No one loves you anymore.
