It Doesn’t Add Up


One to two, two to three
Three to four, four to sixteen
Sixteen to eight, eight to one
One to zero, zero to none

One to count the days go by
Two to help you say goodbye
Three to help you fall asleep
Four to hear your quit weeps

Sixteen to calm you when you cry
Eight to comfort when you're shy
One to count the dreams you see
Zero to love you constantly

None to keep you safe at night
None to hug you warm and tight
None to hold your hand today
None of them cared anyway

None to save you from the fall
None to help or hear you call
None that cared to save the day
None to help you find your way
