Polished smiles and tight neck ties will greet me at the door.
I'll curl my lips and muster mine, my eyes minding the floor.
A silly child with stars in his eyes that died, holes black as night.
The curls I'd fried would curl with pride but under razor's rule they hide.
The hum and glow, the seeds I've sewn would bloom and grow and grow
To walls of grey and white that shield my sight from all the freedom I had known.

And after 14 years when you forget my name
Will I volunteer a tear for years of showing you each what these songs really mean?
After 14 years if it all feels the same
Will I be overjoyed of terrified about what 14 year old words could mean to me?

She said, 'I can't wait for you to be all I need you to be so I can be.'
And she said, 'I need to wake early. So don't you get too flirty when all I need's some sleep.'
Then she said, 'I don't care much for sleeping and I don't care where you've been, just want you here with me.'
But she said 'It's eight hours of typing, it don't matter where you've been or where you want to be.'

And after 14 years when you forget my name
Will I volunteer a tear for years of showing you each what these songs really mean?
After 14 years if it all feels the same
Will I be overjoyed of terrified about what 14 year old words could mean to me?
