I keep it written on a locket and pinned into my jacket
Pocket, these silver shapes who spell your name loom
Around. And I sing it to myself so I don't forget the
Sound. I took a chance on highway driving with the
Sadness packed in to the side of me that planted pills in
The beautiful garden I grew of love for you, oh how I
Watered it with tears so blue. See I knew a girl who
Never cried, so I painted my room the color of her eyes.
Like a fortress, or a blown up portrait in blue, or some
Strange womb or tearless tomb. It's easy now just forget
About it. I start again every day without it. With a new
Lease on life, I'll forget about it. But it's all around
Still. A new lease on life, I've forgotten, I've off-ed
It. I can see you through the window light. Me and the
Shadow-kids go dumpster diving all for nothing, we'll
Still go hungry tonight. The world outside is silver-
White. But it's easy now to forget about it. I start
Again every day without it. I've a new lease on life, I'd
Forget about it but it's all around still. I've a new
Lease on life, I've forgotten. I promise. I promise.
