fogged up when we arrived
hit by a wave smoke outside
do I know you from the everyday?
same place but your faces change
get out who on earth
could crash the craziness where we thrive?
teeter on the rosy rim
lopsided silly grin

I can’t say he didn’t warn me
voice breaking from the corners

sofa or a stronger potion
could bring their heat to a dark 10 by 11
try to piece together
what could break forever
o my (I heard) god speak through a girl
from a bubble world
I know cause I’ve lived there
saw flames in the chandelier
quiver gibberish five drinks deep
and she pleads to her surroundings
I hope she can’t actually save
I hope she can’t actually

I can’t say she didn’t warn me
voice breaking from the corners
escape through the screen door

and on that tipping porch
reds they bummed blazed like torches
a thousand times I fall through sparks
stars shake pointy fingers at
hands and knees in the yard
they wed the ground they water flowers
my head tilts to conversation
they all weave the same questions
she’s just being nice I can tell she’s thinking
shut him off

and in that spinning room
you walked up to me so smoothly
I felt inadequate
my trembling bones wouldn’t let me forget
your gaze fell into my eyes
soon enough your hand took mine
the ceiling and the floor switched places
my balance gave but you held on tight
wanna break the ice?
you repel the Ice in me

I can’t say they didn’t warn me
voice breaking from the corner
I can’t say they didn’t warn me
voice ringing like a mortar
if it’s some consolation
this is the way that it’s always been
and will be…
