not ready

Strawberry fields and run run run
Feet scratching the gravel and no other sound
No one yelling they’ve figured me out
Nothing and no one around, around

It was just too soon
Too soon to tell you.
And I know you think
I only dream
Of pretty things
With you floating in them,
Never wondering where you’ve been
As long as its me now
Like I’m some kind of freak
But now you’ll see
The darker side of me
The pull away
Make you wait
Don’t know how to say
Im not ready.

Then you’ll think me inconsistent
Cuz you expected a book you once read
Touch my silhouette
Like you own it
I’ve been through all this before
I love the sound of a locking door
What can I say?
I need to back up
This is too much
You’re not ready for me
And I’m not ready.

I’m not a free for all
You’re no last call
And the truth is
I don’t miss you yet

You’re encroaching
But you don’t always understand

So I push
