(Verse 1)
Have I offended you,
will all those things I’ve said?
Or was there something that I didn’t do,
to make you push my love away?
It’s what they call a co-dependence,
And I believe that it has ground,
With all the ways my head’s been spinnin’
Just knowing you ain’t coming round.

Cuz only you
Only you
Only you
Send me

And some things are better left unsaid,
please open up your heart if not your head,
because you send me.

(Louis Mackey)
Now I can barely recall her impossible complexion
watching her get dressed, her talk and her inflections
a body that’s electric like you’ve gotta be obsessive
… but you’re not cuz you won the pot with your genetics
So it’s all to be expected: the world comes to you
These little chumps strictly dumbfounded thinking what to do
Between the pauses, speaking nonsense making up the room
You're getting drunk for free and twisting tongues
… send my best ... we went to death a long time before
but you never left my mind alone
dying slow, every time I tried to finally go
From those Lucy in the Sky kaleidoscope eyes that were fire soaked
Now she’s just a random spectre I can’t remember
Don't have a picture in my mind and that's for better
the thin veneer to get me there just in time to disappear
a lullaby then the crystal clear fiction smears

And all my life I’ve been a run-around man,
Much too proud to stand in line to hold somebodies hand,
Then you came around and now I’m changing all my plans,
I begging you to give me one more chance.

(Verse 2)
So could I confide in you,
the crooked cross I bare
is not the thought of kissing up to you
is not the absence of my care
It’s what they call a weeping willow,
and I believe it touches ground,
to kiss the earth that greets your footprint,
It don’t know up and don’t know down.
