The Only Reason

from by Sam Draper



Darling come out tonight
The stars wont wait forever
I want to show you the trees bend backwards and break for me
This part of town has been keeping
Secrets from you
Tonight they’ll concede your worth, let you in

(the cellist I always wanted to meet
died in France of a rare disease
her last request: a bird to fly north,
was shot a mile from shore)

you looked a fucking mess that night
but I looked worse
collapse in the leaves and shed your clothes for me
Yeah you can have anything, anything that you might need
you can having anything that you want
so won’t you want me?

(The only reason I haven’t read your diary
Is because I know
That you don’t keep one)
