this is a town, not a city
so don’t worry, things aren’t as bad as they appear
get passed around in a hurry, I mean the rumors along with the girls
she said, “do I still look pretty?
I’m getting older and time’s the only thing I fear.”
she said, “are you still gonna take me?
does it make you sick, all the men that have had me in these years?”
I said, “it’s just there’s so many”
she said, “take my body and the possibilities there”
I said, “they both seem so empty
and I don’t think they’ll stop the ringing in my ears”
she won’t cry cause she’s used all her tears
she says she’s drunk but she’s not, I can tell by her eyes
and she knows what she wants and she knows if I lie
and no I’m not kidding
I haven’t felt this for the last couple years
it’ll make you sick in the beginning
the rumors along with the girls
and I’ve not seen the ending
i heard that time is the only thing that heals
and now she’s on an airplane
an empty bag for anything she steals
and she’s so tired from sleeping
and the cell phone keeps ringing in her ears
and she won’t cry cause she’s never had any tears
she says she’s dead but she’s not I can tell by her eyes
and she knows what she wants about half of the time
and the sights that were set on the stars through her mind
and the spells that she cast on the bus all those nights
and her perfect match she’ll just never find
and if you’re losing your mind then it’s all right
cause I lost mine
