The House That Never Sleeps
A house with windows broken out
Doesnt know when it became so
When people took out the furniture
And moved up and on
Maybe theyll come back, it thinks
It mourns its desertion
With flakes of falling plaster
When did I change?
How did I stumble into this alteration?
The lost woods
Echo with the resounding notes of a piano
Love is not love that alters
when it alteration finds.
Is this the way that Ive been duped
Did you make me blind?
Im so scared its real
And scared that its just passing through
The lies and imputations that cause
Me to love you
Why am I so happy that I think I wont get hurt
When it hurts so much to admit
I changed my mind
Or to wonder if Ill change it back
And hate myself for sticking to my original
Answer and turning back to what
Was not so sweet
Id ask you to wake me up when this all is over
But I cant get past you
And I cant sleep
