Unknown Pleasures

Day old song baby


Sometimes when you're gone for weeks at a time
I scope out my room in case you left something behind
a little reassurance that I could hold on to
that this is just another phase and we can pull through
but there are no trinkets, no letters, books or takes
no post cards from you with pretty pictures of lakes
once again I'm certain that I'm not on your mind
and I start to feel real stupid that I keep giving you mine

My brother's girlfriend is terribly pretty
I hope that's what your sister's see when they look at me
not my messy hair, or my bad taste,
the family resemblance nothing can erase
Our parents are not like your's
they loved for a little and then they got divorced
I wonder if that short lived thing's hereditary
and all those awful thoughts collect and gang up on me

maybe I
could meet you sometime
without the anxiety
that is always mine
I think you would feel like you are finally fine
and if not right away
maybe over time
'cus freedom is another trap that we fall into
it's lovely at first when it's shiny and new
but it grows and changes with time
until you wish you had one person who could tell
when you lie

I guess I'll wait where you left me right here
listen to unknown pleasures
and drink my brother's beer
he'll notice that they're gone, but he won't say much
he knows he'd feel the same if he and heidi were
out of touch
