i am in the hallway
young again and clean
strain my neck and ears and eyes
the carpet scratching at my knees

and she hopes that i can't hear her cry
and he tells her things will be all right
he'll work it out
he'll see it through
but we all know that that isn't true

and she went hungry today
but i ate
she always works it out that way
she's got a motion
she's got fever
i wish i could be that way someday

the blood will rish to blush me
and i'm warm if you touch me
a mouth and teeth and skin and eyes
but i don't think that they realize
how much i hear
how much i see
and how much is because of me
she was told that men don't leave with work to do
and mouths to feed

but i hear a sound
a slamming door
and i stare down at that hallway floor

and she went hungry today
but i ate
she always works it out that way
and she don't show me
just how lonely
i wish i could be that way someday

now i know i should be sleeping
but what if she needs me?
i won't go far
and when the morning comes she'll find me here
smile;
gather me up in her arms
