CAREFUL BAREFOOT ON THE FLOOR

I THREW THE PHONE AT THE DOOR

MISSED THE DOOR AND HIT THE MIRROR

SHE HUNG IT UP WHEN SHE LIVED HERE

 

PIECES OF BLUE GLASS FALL

THE LOVE OF A FOOL IS STRONG

TO PATIENTLY WAIT SO LONG

TO BUILD A BOMB

THAT WON'T GO OFF

LISTENING TO ALL HER SONGS

GETTING DRUNK AND LEAVING MESSAGES

FOR MORO MOU

 

ONE MORE TIME TODAY

I HAVE TO FEEL THIS WAY

BUT HOW MUCH SLEEP COULD SHE GET

WHEN SHE HAS TO WAKE UP IN HER OWN BED

 

LEARNING THAT JOY'S LIKE RAIN

AND LOVE IS A LONG PARADE

AND SORROW IS LIKE THE SUN

WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO SLEEP

SLEEP AGAIN

AND I KNOW YOU'RE HAPPIER THAN ME

TO BE ALONE AT YOUR WINDOW

OH MORO MOU

LIKE WE USED TO DO

 

I TOOK AT TRIP INTO YOUR PAST

TO KILL THE ONE WHO MADE YOU SAD

BUT YOU HARBORED FUGITIVES

THEY LIVE INSIDE OF YOU

MUST HAVE LOVED THEM

I MUST HAVE TO

 

WHEN PIECES OF BLUE GLASS FALL

THE LOVE OF A FOOL IS STRONG

TO PATIENTLY WAIT SO LONG

TO BUILD A BOMB

THAT WON'T GO OFF

LISTENING TO ALL HER SONGS

GETTING DRUNK AND LEAVING MESSAGES

FOR MORO MOU

 

PIECES OF BLUE GLASS FALL

THE LOVE OF A FOOL IS STRONG

LEARNING THAT JOY'S LIKE RAIN

AND SORROW IS LIKE THE SUN

WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO SLEEP

SLEEP AGAIN
