its light outside
when you finally see
a quiet failure sleeping next to you
dont think
dont try
dont rush away
when i say you deserve less

you try so hard to be
as sweet as you can for me
but i dont see you for who you are
rose of sharon in my failing light

ringless finger
pretend you dont know how you stand it
cause you know you are nobody

you try so hard to be
as sweet as you can for me
but i dont see you for who you are
rose of sharon in my failing light

    General CommentIt's on the Xiu Xiu / This Song is a Mess But So Am I split.

    I saw a copy of it on eBay once, but missed the auction and haven't seen any others since. It's all sort of regrettable since this is one of my favorite Xiu Xiu songs.
