You took the wrong girl to task
You took the wrong girl to town
I loved you for real, you fucking clown
And in your fear and anxiety
You cut the very heart out of me
But it will heal because what breaks
Is only the joy of doing what it takes
To kiss every star that shoots my sky
And love everyone til the day that I die
Love every dark in every light
Love the vastness of a midnight
Love the eclipse and the subterfuge
I love the rain and you’re a deluge
Though the intensity of the monsoon
May have drowned me in my room
I learn to swim back to the shore
And be by myself again once more
But incorruptible this time
Lighthouses don’t seek, they just shine
