The Moment Has Passed

[Intro]
“Having a conversation with you is difficult. You’re very quiet. What are you thinking?”

[Verse 1]
So I can’t communicate
But let’s not fixate on why I articu-late
Because spending minutes on these lyrics — 
Gives me the time I need to really overthink
Writing is just a different route
And I’m going off track
I’m not even writing to a beat
Wait, is “a cappella” one word or two?
Shuffling bars is no mean feat.
English never was my strong suit

[Chorus]
I’m just an amateur bowman
Trying to get my point across
I’m obviously not a poet
Just a modern day enthusiast
These words are all mumbled
But this verse is just a draft
Should I continue?
No wait, the moment has passed

[Verse 2]
I’ve been told I need to share more
Just to get another view
Stuck in traffic, I can’t create the link — 
Needed to keep my thoughts in sync
And if this verse was unable to converse
Will there be another Encore?
Could I have succeeded? Am I just wasting ink?
One last verse I think

[Chorus]
I’m just an amateur bowman
Trying to get my point across
I’m obviously not a poet
Just a modern day enthusiast
These words are all mumbled
But this verse is just a draft
Should I continue?
No wait, the moment has passed

[Verse 3]
To put my message into bars — 
I need to bottle it up
That’s why I’m sitting here quietly in a library
With music acting as my advisory
Oh, the dictionary is offering literary criticism
Accusing me of word plagiarism
But I didn’t take the hook from any book
It was all part of my design
How would you define: exaggerated lyricism?
And I could use some enthusiasm

[Outro]
Looks like this conversation is gaining moment — 
Um, what did you say again?
