This is the head, of my tale,
We pulled up the anchor, and then set sail,
Across the sea, into the blue,
You weren't looking for me, I was looking for you.
When I was gone, you were here,
Travelled so far, still nowhere near,
When I was here, you were gone,
You must have know what was wrong with me.
What was wrong with me?
And we were poles apart, from the start.
When I was in, you was out,
You had it all, I had nought,
When I was out, you was in,
You got fat, and the ice got thin.
If I was hot, you was cold,
If I wasn't young, you wan't old,
I was cold, you was hot,
I had a little, you had a lot.
You had a lot,
Cause we were poles apart.
I gave you my money,
I gave you my time,
I made it all yours,
If it used to be mine.
All of my meanings, and all of my ways,
All of my night-times, and all of my days,
And in the end, I don't know where to start,
You hit my head, and broke my heart,
Lets make a fresh start, I don't want this to end,
I'm not your foe, I just want a friend,
But we were poles apart.
I was black, you was white,
We played in the day, I worked through the night,
You were in darkness, I was in light,
I was all wrong, you was all right.
My knees were weak, your arms were strong,
I came up short, you went long,
My stomach was strong, your flesh was weak,
You left me to hide, and never did seek.
You made me happy, I made you sad,
You made me feel good, I made you feel bad,
Your tales grew taller, I was caught short,
You escaped, I got caught.
I got caught, and we were poles apart.
Your glass was half empty, my glass was half full,
You wanted a push, I gave you a pull,
You jumped out the window, I ran out the door,
You fell from the ceiling and lay on the floor.
I called out stop, you wanted to go
You climbed too high, and fell to low,
Your eyes were dry, my eyes were wet,
You couldn't remember, I couldn't forget,
And we were poles apart.
