Purpose

My car stands motionless in the drive-way
but I still don't have my licence
That guitar stays propped against its amp
but I don't know a single chord
and my lover, she lies there in the bedroom
but...

My chess set collects dust in the fire grate
but I don't know what the rules are
That fishing rod looms above the bait box
but I don't have the technique
and my lover, she lies there in the bedroom
but I...

What am I for
when I don't know how to love her
when I don't know how to let her
love me back
What am I for? 

So I'll keep buying toys
promising I'll master them
when really
there's not much joy
in anything, anymore...
