Worldly 05:14
We could talk of could’ve had In drunken simple fire But morning comes for all of that To sully base desire You’ll leave this place and stumble home Where comfort envelopes gently For our hearth is warmed with loving coals But is stoked by only wanting I’ll believe it when I see it coming round I can’t just wait here with my ear pressed to the ground And no I’ll never trust what you call freedom Because it’s a place out of reach Something you wouldn’t need If you managed to find it somehow In the brown of your eyes I see a mountain bowing Toward rivers rich with other lives And fields of children laughing I know I could’ve said the words And darling I would’ve meant em But even waves of sweetness curl And break on shores of cruelty For even that which turns the world Is shackled to the worldly

The bower broke the art of fiction She asks me to make her come and I say, “First tell me all about your rare affliction” The city is a painting and I Make out only half the words she traced On foggy mirrors, the parsing of lips And tapping S.O.S. It’s anybody’s guess And I know all she’s got left to spend Is her time on me so let’s pretend That I’ve got all the time in the world And she’s got all the time in the world So let’s spend all the time in the world The quixotic pause and the wake that followed The floating buoys in the lake that swallowed Our unlaid plans and the unmade plea, the modest mention or the fierce decree that we are all the same we’ve only changed the names and all the rest remains
