Katie Never Did

by Jason Mendelson



Thumbing through the high school yearbook going back in time
A girl I knew but never understood
Intrepid in the way that she pursued her fantasies
A dusty road that led to my front door

One direction for an artist lost in her own mind
I'd turn my head and she would disappear
Limited in scope and substance clearer to me now
I made mistakes but Katie never did

I had believed this was on me
I was so green

I looked inside a snow globe as I turned it upside down
I didn't see what Katie never did
Sometimes I regret the morning we went our separate ways
And I looked back but Katie never did

Years have come and gone since she drove down that dusty road
I wonder if she ever made the coast
I look inside a snow globe and I shake it just a bit
Now I see what Katie never did

I feel relief now that I see
I can be free

Limited in scope and substance going back in time
Glad I chose the mountain I now climb
Who I was and who I am the pieces finally fit
I took that chance but Katie never did
