"I can compensate for anything"

I can compensate for anything

If she doesn't pick up
I can strum a guitar

If she "forgets" to call
I'll write her a song

If she lies
I can buy it
and a drink at the bar

If she visits that "friend"
I can still play my part
or carve things on trees
like words or hearts
maybe fuck up my arms
because that's just how we are
I can see her undress
but it's just from my car
--no, this isn't "art"
it's a fucking plea
If it's "not you,"
then fuck, it's me, and

I get it, and it's O.K.
I mean,

I can compensate for anything.
