When You Change Your Mind

Changing your mind
You’ll change your mind when you have one of your own.
You’ll change your mind when you get a little bit older.
You’ll change your mind when it happens to you someday.
You’ll change your mind when you just try it.
You’ll change your mind when you just try it one more time.
You’ll change your mind when you hear them live.
You’ll change your mind when you see it up close.
You’ll change your mind once they’re off at school.
You’ll change your mind when yours has one of her own.
You’ll change your mind when you realize what you’ve done.
You’ll change your mind when you turn thirty.
You’ll change your mind when you suddenly and sickeningly find yourself becoming younger.
You’ll change your mind when you have to do it for yourself.
You’ll change your mind when I’m not around to do it for you anymore
You’ll change your mind later.
You’ll change your mind when you suddenly stop aging and find yourself crystallized within time.
You’ll change your mind when you turn fifty.
You’ll change your mind once it stops working.
You’ll change your mind once it stops being so easy for you.
You’ll change your mind when finally I master and control your thoughts.
You’ll change your mind once I seal the entrance to this cave.
You’ll change your mind.
