on the right bank of the East River
sittin' on torn concrete

shaking hands and empty fingers

and I know it
won't mean anything

if indeed this was like a first marriage

then you and I together
can be like
divorcees

I don't need to talk about it

and I don't know
to anything yet

so you can take what's on the table
when you go
you go for everything

and if indeed this was like a first marriage

then you and I together
can be like
divorcees

    General Commentshe can make the worst feelings into something beautiful. atleast as far as words go. i dont know why, but this was definitely my favorite song on long knives.
