Where does this begin. The page is on the table and I look up at you. Your eyes are brown, the room in your command. She says what are you thinking, I’m thinking of going home. And I don’t feel I have to be someone around you, You always gave me that. And all of a sudden You look sadder than I’ve ever seen You’re smiling at me And all of a sudden I think maybe I’ll only ever love you I think of the years to come, and wishing I was here again Making mistakes. Funny I care now, sitting here with nothing owing The last stage in giving up. It happens in reverse She says change comes, and I’ve never seen her wise It can seems hard just to know your own nature And I say the strangest things, it must be to keep this memory breathing And all of a sudden You look sadder than I’ve ever seen You’re smiling at me And all of a sudden I think maybe I’ll only ever love you I think of the years to come, and wishing I was here again Making mistakes.

I’m nothing like I’ve been showing Further from it, closer to it Distracted by the way you see me To no alternative I run The waves of thought, peddling Treasuring my attention Let me cry into these lonely hands That touched each verse of skin the same And desperate as I am, That held your throat and bent your neck And was so romantic And so pathetic Resting on your conscience is an image your are forgetting The sound my laughter caught in your throat And the hissing bitterness It’s to god I prey when you break my heart Call out my faith it’s full of holes Full of cloaks and tricks Full of bargains But it’s where I rest, When I’m tired of excess. Faceless behaviours Moving through my body For immediate satisfaction Wanting complements, But not to hear them
