I Read Your Lips

She says she won’t be written in stone
She told me why
I said I’m doing fine on my own
I’m known to lie
We thought up a utopian dream
And then it started
My face it turned the color of green
So I departed

I tried to try to make it ok
And sew together
The two sides of an opening wound
To haunt forever
The block of writers tugging me down
Without a cure
Before I had the chance to speak up
She snipped the lure

I won’t take off my clothes
And there’s a reason
Why my face has a nose
It’s used for breathing

Stop and hit rewind
Go far back in time
I read you lips, goodbye
