"You can pick your friends, and you can lead a horse to water, but you can't sneeze with your eyes open." ~ "Weird Al" Yankovic

Two kids in a play
One sang in deserted hallways
One played for empty auditoriums
Both found themselves in each other

Two kids practice songs on the street corner
One had the voice
One had the guitar
Both had a dream

Two kids make a hit
One got the girls
One got the money
Both jealous

Two kids turn to folk
One had the ear
One had the pen
Both in perfect harmony

Two kids caught in a revolution
One joined in
One watched and writes
Both turn

Two kids grow up
One can’t feel the music
One can’t feel the connection
Both sing their own songs

Two kids call it quits
One acted
One worked solo
Both with long paths
