Love is Impossible

music/lyrics: Waylon K. Smith
©2017 The Positronic Cats

Gravity works differently in the underworld
So I ascended from the center of the earth
Like Orpheus, I had to retrace my steps
& that is how we met

If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we

While we wept with wolves, we waited
For the gods to fall asleep
&, as the dawn broke, they found we had absconded
By the skins of our teeth


As we sailed to the edge of the world
I said, “I can see the past from here”
You said, “What the hell”
& pinned a rose to my lapel
& we left the atmosphere
