what is real was once just in my head / i tell you all about a love that i once had / i once had a love and now i got a whole where he had been / so there i put another lover in my bed

but when the dust had settled and the wind stood down / i wondered at the bed-hole and my friend / once my friend / who’s now a letter, reddened, staring at an end / where an end had started speeding up loss he did not intend / please don’t tell my father

cuz home is an answer to fear of unrest / of being misunderstood / oh hide in the nest

what is it about you that you miss, that you miss / when you look back on all the girls you didn’t kiss / couldn’t kiss because of something deep inside you you insist / on resisting for the good of someone else’s good intent

i wonder if he’ll ever come again to meet me / after the red writer i have been / i have been every version of myself i could pretend / when pretensions on my honor became what i would defend / i defend my honor

feel the unnatural way fear has a hold on you / hide in your garden, unmoved, feeding on eden’s breast
