true, our lips came close to

touching, but that was

once upon a time

and all that's left now are your

stutters and stares.

-

funny, how close we came to

happily ever after, but

my voice could never have

filtered out the smoke to

become your level of Christian.

-

baby, we had it all in those

empty songs of love, but

you were the first boy who

cried to me.
