I spent the summer breathing in the scent of your arms again
But I was not your woman those times
I was merely a lost, lonesome concubine, my friend

So long, my love, so long, my love
I’ve forgotten your, your, your animated smile
And bitter bile and your wanted child
Your hieroglyphic code and summer odes to the sea
And my body weeps from missing thee
And I’d rather be your mistress than your nobody

We met in parking lots for years
And I would bite back all the tears
As you’d run your hands over my body, cold and wanting you
And the colors of the sky would turn
From red to green to blue to green
And I’d rather be your mistress than your nobody

And I spend my autumn picking flowers
Everywhere was paper flowers covering my home
With charms and candles lit with brittle, little scandals
Seventeen, the men I had and not a single little lad
Could open jars of love I had for you
But I’d rather be your mistress than your way to blue

So long, my love, so long, my love
I’ve forgotten your, your, your animated smile
And bitter bile and your wanted child
Your hieroglyphic codes and summer odes to the sea
And my body weeps from missing thee

Mary, he loved you
I could see it in his eyes
The color of his eyes was real
Mary, you haven’t smiled for a year
You’ve been burning candles
And dying your hair
And it is time, it is time
All love must die!
You must remember the signs
And never cry
And it is time, it is time
All love must die!
You must remember the signs
And never cry anymore
Mary, he loved you
I can see you in his eyes
The color of his eyes is real
And it is time, it is time
All love must die!
You must remember the signs
And never cry
