Everyone’s competing for a love they don’t really need,
A love they won’t receive.
Climb to the top of the tower and reach for her hair
Russian Rapunzel sleeps in peace, shattered glass beside the final stair.
Some days I can just watch you
Lay on the couch resting in peace,
Living a dream in my record machine,
Emanating Fur Elise.
A lovely Garland sits in your hair
Of white lilies, pure and simple.
I love the way it stays there
When you smile and show your dimples.
Together we sit and play cards
It’s what I enjoy the most,
On chairs in the middle of the shards,
God can play host.
To the stars we walk
on a midnight mission
Play hopscotch with the chalk
Don’t need a final decision.
Look up at the moon
But don’t step out of the line.
The stars they croon,
Yet all the songs are mine.
Vampires within my dream,
And then you scare them away.
They just feed off the scene,
I hope you will stay.
I hold you in my arms
We lie together on the grass,
Tell stories about living on farms,
It’s even better when we skip class.
The teachers are clueless,
Some vague numbers and letters on the board
Here’s our chance, let’s do this
Dart away from this mad hoard.
Run through lilies
On our way to the station
Dodge the law on their fillies,
A standing ovation.
Jump the fence
Lean back and kiss me,
Life is intense.
But now I can see.
It means the world
When we sit and play cards,
Because you are my girl;
A white Garland among the shards.
