I was trying to explain how I felt about bagels this afternoon, and it quickly escalated into song.
Yes, this is really about bagels. No, despite that topologically people are tori, this is not about people, it's about bagels.
I woke up this morning before sunrise
and I craved you with a smile
Then I saw where I was and I realized
with a bittersweet pain
I can’t have you anymore
It’s been two years, how the time flies.
I like to think that I’ve moved on now,
Most days I don’t even think of you,
Then I find myself dreamin’ that somehow,
I might find you again.
When I close my eyes I can still feel you,
I can still smell you, I can still taste you,
When these moments come I can’t accept you’re gone now...
I didn’t want to leave you,
No I didn’t want to leave you,
How I wish you could have come with me,
but you are New York through and through,
I’m sorry that I had to leave
every morning you were there for me,
in rain or shine, in wind or snow,
I’d always have somewhere to go,
no matter what I’d say or do,
I knew that I could count on you,
‘cause you are the only one can fill
the emptiness inside that still
I feel whene’er I think of you
I’m tryin’ not to miss you,
But these other bagels ain’t the same,
And I’ve only myself to blame…
So my life goes on as normal,
and I guess I’m pretty happy,
I don’t need you, to be happy.
I’ll just avert my eyes from the inferior toroids that surround me...
