Careful Careful

Don't fuck it up this time
Keep in mind what's at stake
and a sense of priorities move
The mistakes that you've made
You want to walk away with more
than another lesson learned

She's a long ways away
and you are still an unskilled traveler
even if you know better
than the dozen times before
And if there's something that she wants
and there's something that you need
Goals cannot be reached without
technique and perfect timing so please be
There are no assurances
And you really would rather succeed than fail.
