Can I blame loose godless youth?
No reach or the sight to change.
Can leave, won’t weep.
I used to place such luckless weight
on love I thought could eat my own.
I’m ripe and nothing fills me, you'll see.

Raising heat from the park
used to be so easy, I thought about
------- --------
through six months of snowfall.

She came to me in a dream
not lonely for a single thing,
left hope for the youth to carry
in their closed circle of beauty.
A sea of roses ahead, true love adrift on the waves
brushing against one another but it’s never the same.
Slid me a piece of cake
with that look on her face that says -
“we’re together, but only under the water

Can leave, won’t weep.
I’m ripe, nothing fills me.”

Slide me a piece of cake
with that look on your face that says
we’re together, but only out on the water

Can leave, won’t weep.
I’m light, nothing steals me.
