Sleep

March 28, 2009

“You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed/ With a single pillow underneath your single head./I guess you decided that that old queen holds more space than you would need./Now it’s in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it’s free/And I hope you have more luck with this than me/You used to think that someone would come along/And lay beside you in a space that they belong/But the other side of the mattress and box springs stayed like new/What’s the point of holding onto what never gets used? /Other than a sick desire for self-abuse./And I try not to worry, but you’ve got me terrified/ It’s like your some kind of hurry to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye./You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed/You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed.”
