LIVE From the Basement: Lovends by John Lindsey

5 Comments
Recorded live from the basement, with an iPhone! Don't say "obviously."



Lovends

My days are
so lonely
like spiders in their webs are lonely

you were my fly
you told me
I was beyond redemption

it's a lie
that that could never be mine
still you try to
drag me down

My love is
devoted
like a mantis' love is devoted

you were my love
and I doted
for the moment
before that moment

And if you could feel all your pain
would it compare to me
my tears are wine and you are mine
where lovends
is where we begin

Your lies are
my cover
your lips are
my lovers

your crime is the life you give me
your crying always undid me

and if I'm dead
why are all these tears unshed
why are all these tears
for you

Your tears are
an army
they follow me down and hold me
Follow me on Twitter.
