How dare the premier ignore my invitations
He’ll have to go
So too the bunch he luncheons with
It’s second on my list of things to do
At the top is stopping by your place of work and
Acting like I haven’t dreamed of you and I and
Marriage in an orange grove
You are the only thing in any room you’re ever in
I’m stubborn selfish and too old

I sat you down and told you how the truest love
that’s ever found is for oneself
You pulled apart my theory with a weary and
disinterested sigh
So yes I guess I’m asking you to back a horse
that’s good for glue and nothing else
But fi nd a man that’s truer than
Find a man that needs you more than I

Sit with me a while and let me listen to you
talk about your dreams and your obsessions
I’ll be quiet and confessional
The violets explode inside me when I meet your eyes
Then I’m spinning and I’m diving like a cloud
of starlings

Darling is this love?
