the general specific

pull my daisy,
tip my cup
all my doors are open.
cut my thoughts for coconuts
all my eggs are broken.

Wisdom’s a gift, but you’d trade it for youth
Age is an honor, it’s still not the truth
We saw the stars when they hid from the world
You cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl
Maybe she’s gone and I can’t resurrect her
The truth is she doesn’t need me to protect her
We know the true death, the true way of all flesh
Everyone’s dying, but girl you’re not old yet

loveeee my room. 

I headed West, I was a man on the move
New York had lied to me, I needed the truth 
Oh, I need somebody, needed someone I could trust 
I don’t gamble, but if I did I would bet on us

Like the Dead Sea,
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You’ll never sink when you are with me 
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea 

Whoa, I’m like the Dead Sea 
The finest words you ever said to me 
Honey can’t you see, 
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
