lyrics

I love when you go away
Then I get to clean up the mess you made
Stare through the streaks in the glass all day
Here with the boredom I've begged for begged for

I'm happy you get to play
I'm glad that I get to stay here with my fantasies
They might be small but
OK
Don't want a thing but to finish my coffee

I love when you go away
My patience returns like a long-lost friend
The furies they fly out the window
Their sovereignty at its end

I need you to go away
For a minute for an hour for a blessed day
Pack up your mirror
take that ugly woman away

Do I feel guilty?
Not really
I watch your breath rise and fall in your sleep at night
Each morning
I'm reeling from
Any kiss, any touch, any smile, any kindnesses
You are willing to bestow

I love to take a walk unencumbered
I love to read and read and read and read
Anything in front of my face except you

Do I feel guilty?
Not really
I watch your breath rise and fall in your sleep each night
Each morning
I'm reeling from
Any smile, any touch, any kiss any kindnesses
You are willing to bestow

Polysyllabic words that you say
I say them back
We talk all the time
Time flies it stops it goes in a circle
I look at my watch through each story time
Some stories I love
I revel in rhyme
They fall off my lips
They drip down like wine
I'm drinking you in
I'm spitting you out
I'm trying to learn
What it's all about
I'm trying to learn
