You know that it’s cold
But you hope she understands
As she perses both her lips and spits into one of her hands
Does it feel like a dream?
To have her touch you once again?
After waiting patiently for almost two years now on end?

She says she loves you, well you know that could be bad
So much for being grateful for what you have

And your eyes are fixed on a little white bow
At the back of her head that’s in your lap below
You can’t call it forgiveness cause it’s based on a lie
But you can dance the wolf paw waltz in four-four time

My mind’s canine, I hope your heart remains intact
My mind’s canine, cause that’s the nature of the trap

You might be lying next to her but you’re a million miles away
Yeah cause in your mind is a mountain and on the top of you it you lay
And the flick of her exhausted wrist against the clicking of your belt
Leads you to believe and I’d agree you better off boy by yourself

And from the start well you should have know
How easily something sacred grows
And up the back of her heart, in the vein of a vine
Falling in love in four-four time

My mind’s canine, I hope your heart remains intacted
Gin, lime, quinine, that’s the nature of…

And if said I wanted you to be happy, a liar I would be
Cause if I wanted you to be happy I’d tell you to stay
The fuck away from me

(You’ve really got to stop waiting around for someone
To tell you the things you want to do are alright to do
The biggest waste of time I’ve seen is people worrying about other people
But not how they treat other people
But then again I’m kind of telling you what to do
But then again I still think it’s a good idea
Good enough that is)
