PEBBLE IN MY SHOE
by Bradley Dean Whyte

The smell of sweet perfume fills the room
There’s a cat hair on her sweater
How I long to touch her
But I watch my hand grow shy

A try to play it real cool
It’s just not my time to give in
This pebble in my shoe
This pebble in my shoe
Makes me smile and say
“isn’t that just perfect?”

Holding an orange brittle leaf on my fingertips
Watching it float across the street
Feeling the wind blow in my sleeve
Watching the sun grow shy

I cry. I don’t have a reason
It’s just a good time to weep
This pebble in my shoe
This pebble in my shoe
Makes me smile and say
“Isn’t that just perfect?”

Sometimes I cry; I don’t have a reason
Sometimes it feels good to weep
This pebble in my shoe
Is just a pebble in my shoe
Makes me smile and say,
“Isn’t that just perfect?”
