Don't say "It's gonna be an awful year" I didn't even know you were here as you tiptoed through the house a white dress flowing down In my greatest misconceptions of the way I appear when you speak I know its your job to keep me happy and I'll think Of times we could be laughing as you speak With No harsh words and eye contact Love without commitment I don't want to stay this old I don't want our marriage But You seem happier with me around so I guess I'll see this through Don't say "You didn't even know I was here" I know you hear every word in the house I know that every thought that I think will be compared to our vows In my vaguest understanding of the way this typically works I know to smile at all of your clever remarks Never wondering why you wont make No harsh words and eye contact Love without commitment I don't want to stay this old I don't want our marriage But You seem happier with me around and if I can't turn my life around maybe You can take whats left of me and build me into something good someone who won't spurn each chance to care for you and won't talk back or say "I miss when we had No harsh words and eye contact Love without commitment I don't want to stay this old I regret our marriage" But you

You're safe in the mess you've made of your face this is the price you must pay to be But wait Forgotten cold and scared You're staring empty-handed at my face Saying "I am your pet I am your comfort doll if you're crying I'll be there I am at your beck and call" So I'll keep trying just to please you nothing's working break my body I'm safe in the problems I create I can see its all my fault now that you Left me in the freezing cold embrace of those blankets as you left to smoke a cigarette Cause I am your pet I am your comfort doll if you're crying I'll be there I am at your beck and call and at your request I will put on my best uniform if you want me to wear this dress will it mean anything at all? So I'll keep trying just to please you keep pretending something's changing if i keep trying somethings got to get through to you let me know when I'll keep trying just to please nothing's working break my body

I know you never wanted to be this way You're stuck with your mind but your body can change catch your hands in my hair we'll adopt a new name Let's draw in the dirt in Death Valley too far starstruck by writers obscene don't open your mouth or put it to mine Your lips are too full we can redraw the lines And I know that you've shaved your head so faithfully Frayed pink strands on the tiles dye stains off your hair lines my thoughts all the time now I know you never wanted to be this way You're stuck with your mind but your body can change I'll cut all my hair You'll adopt your new name

This face is vacant the features are flowing and I cant remember what you even look like The hair is fragile dissolving to whispers when you twist your finger gathering threads of Pale pink ashes decaying cinders now wet and muddy a cold place to sleep in This face is vacant a nightmare is dawning bury your head under your heavy blankets and Don't let the sunlight hit your face Don't remember having more than your own private space Someone to invite themselves into your own private sins into your own private hell and to take them on as well Now the embers are barren realistically they never were needed we could make do with blankets something to keep the heat in and your form under covers would reduce to white hot light and I'd commit us both to ashes when I felt my skin ignite Your face is stretching through all of my lifetime and when I look up at the threadbare night sky I see pink starlight with trails of whispers down in the hearth where we burn each other Your features drift into the free airspace Becoming the stars that preside over my nights
