AMAZONIAN LADY

24 PITY & DISGRACE Well I’ve seen that look before, he was staring at the floor with that look upon his face, pity and disgrace, he lied. Now I see that look in you, you’re saying we’re still true but your eyes don’t hide your lies. You lie, stick a needle in your eye, pants on fire, pants on fire, you lie. Veiled by the curtain I watched, fascinated by games that adults play when love fades away. Caught up in the pain I swore to my teenage diary no man’s gonna do the same to me. Ain’t it frightening to see the way history repeats, that old play’s the same but now the stars are you and me, and as I read between my lines in that fifteen year old diary I see your lies have made a liar out of me…

25 MATERIAL THINGS I love my car, to her I’m known. She takes me places and brings me home, Stops me from thinking too much ‘bout getting ‘round. Stops me from drinking too much when I’m on the town. I don’t care when they say that you can’t love material things, no way, hey hey. I love my bedroom, my rosy nest. A place to hide or to reveal to the one that I love the best. Stops me from crying too much to empty faces. Stops me from sleeping too much in soulless places. I love my red dress, price tag you’d never guess. Shows off what it’s s’posed to ‘n hides the rest. Stops me from drinking too much in empty places. Stops me from caring too much for hopeless cases. I don’t care when they say that you can’t love material things, no way hey hey

30 LOOSE ENDS I don’t like loose ends, time to make amends. I just wanna be friends again, no I don’t like loose ends. I don’t care who was right, it wasn’t worth the fight. The whole world’s going ’round the bend and I need you in my life. Come and warm my home, I’ll make your chair a throne. Don’t even need to phone, I’m tired of being lonesome. They spoil everything, I’m breathing but I’m not living. Help me pull us tight again, help me tie up those loose ends. Come and share my wine harvested from winding tangled vines like the loose ends in my mind, I’m so sorry you got dragged into this mess of mine…
