she stopped by the store after the storm came
her tired eyes were whispering
and her tired body as far as I could see
was nothing that I want to hold close to me
and then without even talking
she said, “take me into the back”
she said, “take me wherever you want me
you’re cold,” or something like that
I said, “babe, I haven’t been doing too much driving
in fact I gave my car to my brother
and babe, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking
in the arms of another
and for the first time in my life
I don’t care anymore, babe
no, I’ve got some things figured out”
she said, “oh yeah, why don’t you come back to my house
and we’ll see if those things you don’t care about
you see my husband, he’s out of town
and we’ve got some things we could work out
and I promise that he won’t find out
and we’ll use my blankets for hideouts
and you can sleep on his side
of the imaginary line that divides us”
I said, “babe, can’t you tell I’m not excited?
and it’s not a line that divides us
it’s a big fucking wall made of fire
and I have lost my desire
to try and save your life (lie)
and die like a firefighter
and die like a firefighter
and die like a firefighter
and die like a firefighter
and die like a firefighter”
