never content to just walk away

flying like a crow
with a broken wing
i try to sing
but she’s not here
so i can’t find the words
they disappear

every breath i share with you
is a word you take away
and when i spend a night with you
it turns to day it turns too soon
and i find i have nothing to say
i have no words left to give to you

but if i said your name
one thousand times
would you remember me
would i win a prize
or would you just look right through me
as if i was a shadow that you forgot to brush away

it all works out this way
it all seems so easy
when you stand that far away
and i just lie in the street
get hit hard
by the fist of lust
and i sink i’m lost
just the sense of skin
i’m not that strong
i just try to sing my song
