A Suitable Lie

Dark room daydream
And a stumble
Walking down the hall
I don’t deserve
All that I have learned
There’s crows in the yard
And a mirror
Shining on the wall
My reflection is all
That I understand about myself

It seems I’ve destroyed
All that you thought that I was
Truly wanna change
Though we know that we’ll never
But, in my defense, I have tried

A suitable lie
And a bottle
My prescription padded room
You don’t know how
We came to this
But now and again
I’ll remember
Your picturesque mornings
Thing used to fit
Like we hoped they always would workout

It seems I’ve destroyed
All that you thought that I was
Truly wanna change
Though we know that we’ll never
But, in my defense, I have tried
And, in my defense, I love you
