  • Sometimes, when I can’t sort it all out
    When the words aren’t there to make sense of my life
    (They are, after all, just symbols to express,
    To organize the thoughts in a coherent fashion)
    Sometimes, I just count

    Numbers, mathematics, can put it all in order
    Can sort it all out in my mind and my soul
    When words make no sense and jumble all together
    Numbers save the day and make it all o.k.
    Sometimes, I just count
