{six of cups}


Drank my weight in water
Pretended I was no one’s daughter
Followed every freeway out of town

Drove the desert at night
Through gusts that truckers refuse to fight
Slap myself awake with the windows down

Wind chill and sweat
Wet shirt and sleeves
If you came to make peace,
You oughta leave

Caught a lifetime of sleep
Kept having dreams of drowning
Barely out bed, I straight my sheets

Taught myself good habits
Where were you when all this happened?
Routinized my life so my mind’s free

Measure the grounds
The kettle screams
If you came to make peace
You oughta leave

Lost you like a locket
Shouldn’t have left it in my pocket
Taking every pain to track it down

Scan the sand with flashlights
We’ll search this beach if takes all night
Sooner drown myself than let you down

Fragile little chain
Inscribed for me
If you came to make peace
You oughta leave

If you came to make peace
You oughta leave
