one, two, three, numbers seem so simple,

one, two, three, numbers seem so simple,
they’ve got their future figured and
just keep going, four, five, a dream
goes walking and never comes back,
six, seven, eight, when they hated
each other enough they parted, nine,
ten, eleven, twelve, will I never
be content, why is it all so hard,
are other people’s lives really as
simple as they seem to be, twelve,
thirteen, fourteen, and so on
