The thing I Can't Do

I can do anything I want
I can be good or bad
I can be happy or sad
I can climb mountains
and swim across entire oceans.

I can even be your catcher
I could be a wall
act like your crystal ball
there are many things I could show you
from a different point of view



The thing I cant do
is exactly this
I cannot make life easiness.
I cant be a master puppeteer
and take away all the fear

I cannot bring myself
to save you.
to cradle you.
to control your every move
so you wont fall through.


Thats the one thing I cant do.
If I did this
life would be meaningless.
no mistakes.
no retakes.

I can do anyhting I want
be happy or sad
good or bad.
the one thing I cant do
is catch you.
