Six Hours

from by Bonehoof



I'm spending too much time drinking 2 for 1 cheap wine
and throwing cigarette butts from balconies
like throwing coins in to a well, I'm thinking to myself there is only a bottle left between
Six hours ago I was brave enough to show my beady eye thru the letterbox of your door
I live miles away, tonight I cannot stay, last time I spent it on the floor

It's not the right time to do this
I'm still not over what has been and gone
Now you need someone to hold you
Now I'm not that one, baby I'm not the one

I remember waiting for you outside the gates to our school and at seventeen we were still sucking our thumbs
We scratched just what we could into a desk of old grained wood
before we both got caught

All these silly tears they'll just melt your veneer
and trickle like slurred words back into a drink
Don't put them all outside, their bark is worse than bite
I shouldn't be around to help you think

Maybe I should go it's six hours home
Maybe I could wear my disguise
and climb up into the trees all above the factories
and put on my telescopic eyes
and watch you from afar thru my telescopic heart
burning unsent words you put in lines
Six hours before I came knocking at your door
were you burning those words of mine?
