lyrics

Before the error was trial and there you were
Negotiating kisses under the stars
You had a friend, a minor version of you
He was a wild horse dulled by ketamine nights
You used to merge with him
Dispelling the breeze in opposites
Disheveling the grass under your skin
Backyard wrestling was your favorite thing

Eyes of swamp green leather
Wicked grin
There are many just like you
They have made more every since

On the wall about your bed
There was a portrait of cupid at odds
With everything I ever was
So I held myself hostage from promises
I never made with intentions to keep
And I let your desires down in blankets
And dissolve into floral motifs
I seemed so stupid, didn't I?

These lessons our never ours to choose
Beware of those who have nothing
Beware of those who have nothing to lose
