You talk some trash and watch me vacuum in my knee socks
phone in my back pocket
my headphones on so loud can’t hear the soccer scores
you like my ponytail
ignore the players
and end up all over my spring blouse
unbuttoning my friendship buttons.
We walked on St.Paul all night
chasing our dreams
and kissing in cabs
I remember everything
the flashing reasons
I love you blow up in my face
erase the scars and build new castles.
You know how to fall in love with me
for decades, finding new things
not being pulled in by my witty lines
but my real legs
You know exactly where I was when I lied
and you loved me anyway
chasing me down
showing me how you are the only one
who can handle my locked up days.
Play me that song
none of that new crap
but the one you sang to me
at your bar
in front of a live audience.
This is what keeps me close to you.
