There's a look on your face of innocence
slackened jaw and eyes devoid of reason

I can tell that you aren't filled with any sort of thought
and I love that and all of your parts.

I don't mind so much how dumb we look
when we're pressed together like library books
in the middle of the night standing where we stood
out in plain sight, we did what was required.

The novelty of the space between our jaws
litters every conversation with long pauses
syllables winding on throughout the hours
when your lips pause to kiss between the vowels

Let's be stupid, our mouths agape in the moonlight
Maybe Cupid, delights in seeing our blank minds
if I had my wits, I'd probably ruin the moment
so instead I'll resign myself to enjoy it.

Out in the light, we did what was required.


from Lamplighter, released April 26, 2004
