a bemoaning

That warmth of having a song stuck in your head
     that was some B-side of a single from a few years back
          but only recently have you discovered it
     You find it so infectious, you just want your brain to soak in it
And so soon you can’t get it out
You begin making up words to it that are sort of like the right words
But not exactly
     Those are your lyrics you’re putting to it

If it was that easy to come up with those words
Why couldn’t you have just come up with this melody and instrumental arrangement
     for which you have such a star-crossed affinity?

You could have been the one to record it, and reel in those royalties


     damn this retroactive talent
