I see a darkness behind her eyes
There's a silence in her laughter
And I know
Because I watched
There's a falseness in her skip
As she moves she feels her feet on the ground.
She knows her heart is ten times too big inside her.
He sees nothing,
Watches only her smiles
Sees only what he wants to see.
That he has given her a raft
And filled it with lead,
And set her a float,
She sits sedate as he pushes them off
Into the dark water
He's doing it for her
He's doing it because he loves her
And she's letting him,
Because she can.
Because he's dying to be loved.
