Dressing Down

Post by audiofool » Thu Aug 31, 2017 9:11 pm

I've got no money for anything
and something's happening to me
you'll put me in the poor house
right where you want me to be

if I'm not careful
you'll take more than your share
with your haute couture
and your devil-may-care

the unlikely candidate
the contest is fixed
if I lose your affection
the future's deep-sixed

I can count on illusions
to carry me through
juvenile reminiscing
the good times with you

a little bird once told me
not to count all my eggs
she flew into the sunset
dancing on yesterday's legs

I stared blank and empty
into your wandering eyes
no messiah to save me
from your Judas disguise

I can count all the stars
in your grasping hands
now I know you are
the wrench in all my plans

and in a credulous moment
when I let down my guard
sailing above the summit
coming down is so hard.
