lyrics

patchwork fraying at the seams
sun pokes holes where patterns meet
paisley against polka dots

ashes on a table top
rubbed into your oily skin
until the surface shines like clean
wipe the ashes on your jeans

crooked teeth, crooked smile

you can taste the sweet delight
even from this far away
tumbling all into the sea

assorted fruit, waking dreams
on the surface for a while
then slowly deeper out of sight
taste better than you thought they might

crooked teeth, crooked smile

jacket sleeves a bit too long
pants that sag
playing person
words that seem to come out wrong
stay in bed
playing possum

hair shines yellow in the sun
dress so easily undone
baring secrets she can’t tell
oh, i think they suit her well

crooked teeth, crooked smile
