Bring your silver arrows,
bring your tender and scented white breast.
Bring the coldest blue eyes in this world,
bring the taste of liquor and cigarettes.
Bring your voice that cracks and glitters,
bring the love I'm pathetic to crave.
Bring me one more night long and bitter,
bring me the face of the woman I hate,
then put on your clothes and go home...
Just leave me alone....

This bed was warmed by your shadow,
and my fingers still trace the lines where we layed.
Now my thinking's distorted and is shallow,
twisting the knife in the idiot face of my rage.
Bring your torn and scattered pictures,
bring the sweat and the stink of your love.
Bring the whispering words I thought that I heard,
bring me the wound with no healing or cause...
Bring me the tongue that you put in my mouth,
and bring the pain and the junk in my lungs.
Tell me you love me but not very much...
Don't bother with reasons, just go...
Just leave me alone....
