lyrics

I fell for you
Like the Roman
Empire.
With friends, we shared
Little handheld
Campfires.

We get mad
At other lovers
Because we covet
Their proximity.

Under the stars,
We shared the breath
In our lungs.
Behind thin walls,
We heard the sound
Of slapping tongues.

Muffled moans.
Jilted words.
Yeah, who did they think
They were fooling?

Barefoot through brooks.
I could not stand
On the rocks.
I hung from yr
Neck like a dead
Albatross.

Watch the life
Leave our bodies.
Throwing light
At galaxies.
