my sole is stuck

shoes are super important in new york
not only do we want the shoes we want
but we have to be comfortable in them
they have to fit
my shoes right now are lovable
they really are
and damn good looking
they really are
but they're not the right fit
i tried to make them work
and i've got some serious sores
they're for someone else maybe
or no one at all
but they're stupidly stuck
and something's still on the sole
my sole is stuck
every time i take a step they stick
every time i try to take them off they stay
stupid sticky stagnant staying shoes
stop! just fucking stop
either i need to go barefoot for a while
or it's time for a new pair
