Hiding what I can

Love never wanted me

I comb the crowd and pick you out
My mouth moves too fast for you to figure it out
It starts eyes closed to fingers crossed
“To I swear, I say”
“To I swear, I say”

To hands between legs, to “whatever it takes”
To drinks at the club to the bar
To the keys to your car
To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door

To the love, I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
“What did it ever do for me” I say (I say, I say, I say)
It never calls me when I’m down
Love never wanted me
But I took it anyway
Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both
Love never wanted me

“I hoped you choked
And crashed your car”
Hey “tear catcher”, that’s all that you are
And ever were
From the start
I swear, I say
I swear, I say

Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both, no

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Through the keyhole I watched you dress
Kiss and tell
(Loose lips sink ships)

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
“What did it ever do for me” I say
