Remember the day we met
you asked me for a cigarette
distracted, i acted without thought
and ignored you
and you got upset
left me there without a world
but not alone
for now a third would rule the room that afternoon
the loudest silence ever heard

my best imaginary friend
he and i made excellent bookends
brothers, not to others tied
but each the shadow of his twin
to sink into his favorite chair
when neither one is really there
and show the world a pleasant smile
or maybe just a vacant stare
you know its just the same to most
it just depends on who you owe
behind the mask
dont have to ask
an icy field of driven snow

we live and we die it seems
ad never see the puppet strings
sleepers walking
busy bees inhabiting each other's dreams
and me, i knew myself so well
a scarecrow on a carousel
a spinning world just out of reach
a blur, i saw but couldnt tell you how i found myself alone
i crossed a bridge on my way home
and threw my soul into the depths, for you


but if you go
away from me
our house will fall
on us both you see
and then we'll share
this revolver's breath
tomorrow finds us together in death

my love for you is like a rose
that follows where the sunset goes
and finding velvet fields of stars
its petals so that it shows
my heart there for all to look
a beating page torn from a book
and cradled in its bed red bloom
offered to the one who took it from me

hope to hear you say its yours
forever and a day
or longer
love gets stronger
till it burns the space between away
this flower holds the key to me
its secrets guarded jealousy
but opens up in trusting not betrayed

but if you go
away from me
our house will fall
on us both you see
and then we'll share
this revolver's breath
tomorrow finds us together in death
