When the switch turns on,
She can't stop it.
Feeling all this weight
And keeps losing some.
She's thinking about
Making appointments
And I'm hoping that
She'll just snap out of it.

I sleep over at her apartment
After I finish my evening shift.
She wants to leave the escarpment
And she's hoping I can take a hit.

Then we can hear each other,
She tells me it's all right.
So carve your name on the family tree;
Show me the roots of your bloodline.

I walk lightly when I'm around her,
Counting months left on the lease.
I know she's got precious feathers,
So I tiptoe to keep the peace.

We hit the road for a couple of weeks
And it happened again.
You're a poster from the 1950s,
But you lost another ten.
I hate being alone,
But you know I might not be here in a couple of years.
I wasn't here in a couple of years.

Our love was like no other.
She turned me inside-out.
So carve your name on the family tree;
Show me the roots of your bloodlines.
