lyrics

She

She writes about loving
She writes about pain
She writes about sinning
She swears she’ll never sin again

She writes about journeys
She writes about being free
She writes about her dead end job
And the child she’ll never see

---------------

Refrain

She’s amused to see me scribbling
Catching truth on a napkin stain
She’s laughing at my frailty
She throws clauses at my pain
And she knows that in the end
I’m going to try again

------------

She writes about the rapist
She writes about gold
She writes about the loving
She writes about the old

She writes about her mother
She writes about her god
She writes about her fear at night
When she goes out for a walk

Refrain

She writes about “I love you”
She writes about “Set me free”
She writes about the danger
She can tell nobody sees

She writes about mistakes
Places she was afraid
She writes about the dust balls
That collect around her bed

She writes about her teacher
She writes about his wife
She writes about her innocence
She applies heat to the knife

She writes about body smells
From underneath the door
She tells the waiter go away
She asks the bartender for more

Refrain

She expresses her life in symbols
Her life’s a ritual
She takes wine with her morning tea
There’s bread in the bowl

She’s circumcised and actualized
Satori is her whole
She’s a tiny little baby
And yet she’s far too old

She objects to mercy killing
She laced the food with drugs
She took one of the holy vows
But she forgot which one it was

Her doors are all unlocked,
But the closets all have keys
I wonder if I’m dreaming her
Or if she is dreaming me
