A single rose in your garden dwells
Like any rose it's not itself
It is my love in your garden grows
but let's pretend it's just a rose
Well I'm sorry that I love you
It's a phase I'm going through
There is nothing that I can do
and I'm sorry that I love you
Do not listen to my song

Don't remember it, don't sing along
Let's pretend it's a work of art
Let's pretend it's not my heart...
The rose will fade when summer's gone
The song will fade and I'll be gone
because my heart is dying too
and it's all the same to you...

I had lost my mind.
I lost my head for a while
was off my rocker outta line, outta wack.
See I had this tiny crack in my head
That slowly split open and my brain snoozed out,
Lyin' on the sidewalk and I didn't even know it.

I had lost my mind.
Why, i was sitting in the basement
when I first realized it was gone.

Got I my car rushed right over to the lost and found.
I said "pardon me but I seem to have lost my mind."
She said "Well can you identify it please?"
I said "Why sure its a cute little bugger
About yea big a little warped from the rain"
She said "Well then sir this must be your brain"
I said "Thank you ma'am I'm always losin' that dang thing."
I had lost my mind.

Still in the danger zone. Optimistic. Crossing fingers. Nausea. Feeling of loss.

Sans Souci

Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket
Shoot it with my cap gun just to make it
Seem like stars

There she goes again
She's out on the streets again
She's down on her knees, my friend
But you know she'll never ask you please again
Now take a look, there's no tears in her eyes
She won't take it from just any guy, what can you do

You see her walkin' on down the street
Look at all your friends she's gonna meet
You better hit her(...)

Here comes that shit again
I got a Halloween head

Head full of tricks and treats
It leads me through the nighttime streets
Black cats and fallen trees
Under ladders - always walkin’
Salt shaker spills - just throw it over your shoulder, babe

Trade all your heroes in for ghosts
They’re always the one’s who love you most

"The Love Song must be born into the realm of the irrational, the absurd, the distracted, the melancholic, the obsessive, the insane, for the Love Song is the noise of love itself and love is, of course, a form of madness."

The second great depression
Lasted longer than I figured
It stuck around and lingered
Surrounded me and conquered
