Dead End





Dead End


Did you know I made up words 

To portray your face to god

The precious sounds I made for her

Will ring as somewhat odd



The headache you prepared for me

And the trembling of my hand

You forgot my aim for decency

When you let love take command



I left you for another that I’ll never meet again

You will find your comfort in the arms of other men

Sail on, lover, sail and we may meet around the bend

Lift your veil and raise your glass

‘Cause love’s a dead end


I need to forget the roads I went

To want to want again

The coins I earned but I never spent

Were all stolen through the end



I choked on tasks that I could not make

And honey, I never loved you well

The last embrace that I couldn’t take

Was the one you tried to sell
