i promise i won’t be here when you wake up
don’t think i don’t know
this is a momentary lapse, still
perhaps you will remember me
tomorrow when you take up with
another stranger’s stranger and you
help him to relax

i promise i won’t say a thing
to anyone
mostly i’ll just never talk to you again this way because
it’s never the seduction
it’s the cover up that upends
any chance we have to make tomorrow feel like yesterday

so Joanna would you fan a fire for me?
would you be a lighter for me?
or believe when i have a want?
i could stand to retell all the tired stories
i have told so many times
to anyone and everyone

i promise i won’t write a song about you
or if i do i promise that i won’t use your real name
cause pretty though it may be
i know that once i hear it in the future when i sing it
it will never sound the same

so Joanna would you fan a fire for me?
would you be a lighter for me?
or believe when i have a want?
i could stand to retell all the tired stories
i have told so many times
to anyone and everyone

give it a chance and we’ll conspire to be only us
required to be in the holes it’s temporarily
so when i ran it by you you said
where you make your bed is also
where you’ll sleep when it’s done
