Frank Ocean – We All Try

You gotta believe in something…

I want in…

I want to listen, to share, to engage,

To see if it was possible to get back on the same page,

To understand you, to explain me.

To apologise, to learn, to talk, to maybe…

See if we were even reading the same book anymore.

To see if we could start over, afresh, like before.

I’ve enjoyed learning you Sir, so, so much,

The feel of your strong pages under my touch,

The majesty of your words under my gaze,

The sensation of your voice, the melody of each phrase,

Your words then danced on the page before me.

Now they lay flat, more 2 than 4D.

So if you’re grown tired of teaching me you,

Or if you’ve decided learning me just isn’t for you,

Of course, I will be sad and disappointed,

But I am strong, a Princess anointed.

I will be ok, I am fully grown.

I can handle it. Just let me know.

And if it’s possible, to speak with you,

To listen and have a ‘silence breakthrough’,

To make believe, to imagine and play,

To have fun again, to flirt every day,

To continue our adventure of dialogue and prose,

I want in,

just so,

you know x
