come back alice

will you venture down the rabbit hole
to find your wonderland
i wonder if you know what to do
if you ever get there
will you dance will you laugh
will you grow to understand
that in the lives of everyone left
you've made a little tear

you always spoke the sentences
that no one ever heard
you thought the best of people
who seemed to do you wrong
you chased the possiblity
that was only ever observed
but now you don't do anything
all that's left is a song

you caught the rabbit with the watch
he made time stop just for you
after a beat of silence all went blank
and the theatre lights came on
your sadness found home in my heart
that nothing could undo
wait for me to join the dance
the time between us won't be long
