It's purty


Each eye spoke of a suicide
One the virgin's death
The other subtly still can hide
Between the frozen breaths

Her tears fell swift like tambourines
What make their tiny crash
A tongue hangs up above her dreams
So crushers can be lashed
And I know you I want you to be loved
And I know you I'm fighting for it love

Now, I don't mind the lash or two
It takes to be her friend
Nor the babbling towers I must build
When I come back again
But longer and still longer
And still longer I have fussed
To row and row my boat until
My brow sweats out her trust

And she's like a walking seashell
That's empty and it's dry
Why can't I find the ocean
That thunders down inside
