Who Are You and What Have You Done with My Wife?

I want so badly to live in your world
for a day or two at most
I want to watch your moonlight
I want to see the sun rise
from your vantage point
I want to know what it feels like
I want to experience your mood swings
I want to see the things you see
the premonitions you envision
and the silly thoughts you think
I want to crack open your mind
I want to take a look inside
I want to dream your dreams at night
as soon as you close your loving eyes
for just a little while

It seems crazy from this end
to fight like cats and dogs
such a waste of time and energy
when we should be making love
the choices you don't make
the risks you don't take
the cash you won't spend
I can't understand any of it
I say I do but I don't
but what I really want to know
is how you function in this planet
I want to wear your dress
to do my hair the way you do yours
and to walk in your shoes
for a block or two, and no more

I love you but I don't know you
which I guess is all fine
'cause you don't know me either
and as far as I know
when it comes to the law
ignorance is not a crime
