Words For Girlfriends

Do I feel jeal­ousy when you’re free without me?
Maybe
Do I feel that my love will stay with you forever?
Hopefully
In memori­am of my lov­ers will you sleep with me forever?
Oh most cer­tainly I nev­er did doubt you

You sur­round your­self with trinkets like they’re mean­ing­ful possessions,
baby
Like some squir­rel in the garden with expens­ive permutations,
Save me
They’ll out­live you in the end will be your final realisation
Oh most cer­tainly I nev­er did doubt you

Words for girl­friends parad­ing as songs
to be liv­ing with songs, yet without you
Words for girl­friends parad­ing as songs
‘Though I nev­er ever really did doubt you, no…

As we search our lives forever for per­fec­tion in relations,
Ladies
I can dream of love and scheme of love with all its complications,
Shakily
Ideals are fine for beauty but for love they fool relations
Oh most cer­tainly I nev­er did doubt you

Words for girl­friends parad­ing as songs
to be liv­ing with you, yet without you
Words for girl­friends parad­ing as songs
‘Though I nev­er ever really did doubt you,
No I nev­er ever really did doubt you

As we search our lives forever for per­fec­tion in relations,
Ladies
I can dream of love and scheme of love with all its complications…

They’re just words, only words
