"Frittering" as written by and David Fridman Joseph Chambers....
I've seen you eat away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine
I've seen you chisel away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine

And you wonder why I leave so soon
How I get so high sink to the bottom of your room

I've seen you fritter away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine
I've seen you whittle away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the spine

And you wonder why I leave so soon
How I get so high sink to the bottom of your room

I wonder why I stay
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine
I've seen you eat away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine

I wonder what to do
Slow as a glacier takes to move on through the world

And you wonder why I leave so soon
How I get so high sink to the bottom of your room

And you wonder why I leave so soon
How I get so high sink to the bottom of your room

I've seen you chisel away
Hammer in place always in time
I've seen you chisel away
Slow as a glacier makes its way down to the Rhine

And you wonder why I leave so soon
How I get so high sink to the bottom of your room

    General CommentMaybe it is about a love/hate situation. When you think someone is the coolest person in the world, but because they know you intimately, they also know how to turn your screws. Thinking of you, H.
