Love Is a Grave

Today I failed
again they did me
wrong, I am a wonder

saw loud places
drink­ing, wait­ing, blink­ing
and talk­ing to no one

I’ve been wait­ing such a long, long time
I’m so tired
I could sleep for years

lead me to your fields of gold
in your hands
I lay my heart to rest

going out again
same old mad­ness
an urban tristesse

dark, loud places
drink­ing wait­ing, blink­ing
and talk­ing to anyone

don’t believe a sin­gle word you say
take what you want
even if it hurts

bury me in your slen­der arms
will you paint me red
love is a grave
