sleep forever

I’ve got so much to do now
why can’t we live in the moment
well can we pay our rent first?
tell me did you pay your rent first

I am always hungry
why are we always hungry
I really want a burger
I thought we said ‘go vegan’

we used to use paper plates and
fancy bottled water
you didn’t tell a soul
and I told everyone

when you were born son
it was nice for a while
then it got confusing
I had to make a decision

her eyes were blue and
your heart was yellow
I read attachment theory
and all that psychobabble

we should probably stop this
we won’t ever stop this
it’s pretty complicated
it’s not really complicated

I just want to sleep forever
I just want to sleep forever
you get to sleep forever
just let me sleep for an hour

razor love

 

 

I got to bet that your old man
Became fascinated with his own plans
Turned you loose, your mama too
There wasn’t a thing that you could do.
I got faith in you, it’s the kind of love
That cuts clean through.
I got faith in you, it’s a razor love
And it’s true.

And you really made my day
With the little things you say
Right now I’m looking through the window at a silhouette
Trying to find something I can find yet
Imagination is my best friend
Got to watch out for the greedy hand, greedy hand
Make a living like a rolling stone
On the road there’s no place like home
Silhouettes on the window.

Who was it made your eyes flicker like that
Tell me baby, where do get the knack
I came to you with open arms
And I really took you down the track
Now all I’ve got for you is the kind of love
That cuts clean through.
All I got for you is razor love
That cuts clean through.

You really made my day
With the little things you say
Right now I’m looking through the window at a silhouette
Trying to find something I can find yet
Imagination is my best friend
Got to watch out for the greedy hand, greedy hand
Make a living like a rolling stone
On the road there’s no place like home
Silhouettes on the window.
