Smell

I thought I smelled you in – My hair today
I thought I could make up a tune – To pass to pass the time
But in my room – You’re there in my view
Hoping this will be
As the emptiness fills
With every word that drops
From your mouth and your
Smell is still
On my arm
I thought I could hold onto you – With my stupid glare
Now I could just live under – That rock I told you about
But sometimes things are just not – So I force my way through
Smashing all I build
As the emptiness fills
With every word that drops
From your mouth and your
Smell is still
On my arm
He’s gone and he’s gone – He’s gone off with my look
Packed neatly – So neatly between his socks
And between his pants
As the emptiness fills
With every word that drops
From your mouth and your
Smell is still
On my arm
Now Dave and I will – Sing to her in the night
And you won’t hear my voice – In the total
Darkness

A Letter

When words just don’t relay
What I’m saying to you
Because you’ve just got
Dumped so eloquently
I didn’t think I’d have to
Throw that away again
I’ll have to remember that
Next time
There she goes again
There she goes and so
There she goes
Dear Mister so and so
How should I write the real words
From seven hours ago?
And so now I’m
Sending you a
I’m sending you a
I’m sending you a message
Right now
There she goes again
There she goes and so
There she goes
I do and I do I do believe
Time just went backwards
Right back through to the other side
But I’m sure now I’m so sure
Where you own the clock
It does exactly what you want
Every time I said every time
Of the day

Wind

I’ll let you be
I’ll let you be
Let you little bee
I’ll let you be
You’ll let me be
You’ll let me be
Let me little bee
You’ll let me be
I need wind
I need wind
I need wind
I need
She’ll let you be
She’ll let you be
And I heard her voice before
She’ll let me be
I need wind
I need wind
I need wind
I need
Wind blows me up and down
All around
All she has in her hand
Is truth
Wind now I’ve found
A little piece
Of what I used to be
Save me
Save me
Save me
Little little bee

Driving Far

So lately I’ve been driving far
Just to feel the speed
Sampling the breeze
‘I wish I had yours’
They said to me
But I had had my own
Secret secret secret
No ones gonna find
As the seasons is crispy
Is the love you feel
Coming out
So naïve little one
little comic little brat
you think slowly to want
As the seasons is crispy
Is the love you feel
Coming
Coming out I’m running out
I’m dreaming out
I’m heading out alone
You you said that I saved you
When you saved me
Coming

So Tell Me...

It just got really cold
More so the day before
And that’s when the baby came too
I was right there
And my mind was well you know
And she didn’t even say a word
And she didn’t even utter a word
But even in the cold
And even under his robe
Right in here I feel home
So tell me tell me I don’t need you anymore
Heaven was playing that day
Did you hear me should I take it back?
And Daddy won’t understand
And you won’t understand I know
But even in the cold
And even under his robe
Right in here I feel home
So tell me tell me I don’t need you anymore
Is there some pill that I could take?
Just pick her up just pick her all up
And I thought that time could change you
But doors get in the way
She’s still got you wrapped up
So nicely so nicely
So now I don’t care
I just don’t feel the way that you do
No I don’t care
I just don’t love the way that you do
So I’ll tell you I’ll tell you
I don’t need you anymore
