I tell my love to wreck it all
is outside your window
rocks in a marble sack-its nearly three
and your opening your window
for the final time
inviting him to climb up.
one last time.
We always knew my youth was idle
and my insides quite pure
Remember the day you decided
that my idiosyncrasies
were not mature enough
for salty earth
tongue and cheek lectures
filled with pride filled with me
standing there crying
like a baby
two days old.
those speeches from your wrinkled old mouth
your thirty year old mouth
of what it means to grow old
as if someone so new could even know?
well honey, if this is what age does to folk
bitter pauses and the absence of love notes
ill stick to drinkin from this well
i sat down next to your side
your ribcage was as fragile as ever
my hands were like knives
remember that day we sat there for so long?
why don't you breathe more
it takes up too much time.
I know what I sign up for
I know what you were thinkin'
when you handed me that pen
skip to the part where I'm crying again
you scream it was all such a waist of time and you end it with a question mark
i let my love wreck it all
yes,he says,your right.
we have a chance to make it work out all right.
