"'Marry me…'

And my heart slams in my chest like a ten pound hammer,

And I sit

And listen

In disbelief, as you pour out ever promise I ever needed to hear,

Such a promising lie

From

The soldier going to war,

But it hits harder than the look in your eyes

Sharp, like the night you left

&&

For an instant I can see it

The pretty pretty picture you paint in my head,

For a moment I let myself believe you,

But

Something always comes back

That memory that just won't disappear

The baby you made me loose,

And

Just

Like

That,

I'm walking out the door, keys in hand

Like I hadn't heard a word.

[[how long will you stay this time, baby?]]"
