you didn't

ask

but i'm telling you

anyway.

i'm telling you that

i stay up so late 'cause it's easier to sleep when i'm too tired to

think

at all.

(does it count as a midnight confession if midnight's already run past,

screaming

a whisper into the night/morning?)

i guess the idea's the same,

and

i'm telling you 'cause you didn't ask and even if you did

the bruises under my eyes wouldn't be any

easier to explain.
