Just a Pup

from by The Very Most



It's a cold, cold snap
And I'm feeling everything
Just a bit more acute
Just a bit more wholeheartedly.

There's an empty chair at my show the other day.
And I'm reading a book with the epilogue halfway in.

I know middle age gets pushed out eternally
I read somewhere online 65's somehow 40.
But it's not, that's wrong, 'cause I feel it coming on.
But I know I'd be fine if I could just check in with her.

Because you couldn't tell what age she was.
Because she did she wanted to do.
And she was happiest when others were.
And she only slept five hours a night.

This song's the opposite of John Lennon's.
You know the first on Plastic Ono Band.
What she did for me prepared me for
Something as deeply wrong as her being gone.

She'd say, "You're just a pup."
And I'd believe her, 'cause she's my mom.
