Half A Day

The first time I found
My feet in this world
Was in a dim country safe room
Where they spoke gentle and whispered the name
Of an old crone lady
Dumb
But did she know
Could she see

When you run away
You curse at my name
And when you come back
Sparks fly
It’s light for a while
Til it’s red in my eyes
And you
Lie still on the floor

Now if you want to I want to
What do you say
I’ve got a lifetime
You’ve got half a day

There’s someone I miss
Like there always is
She’s not mentioned in here
Not mentioned anywhere now
She’s just someone I beat black and blue
In those mixed up old days

Now if you want to I want to
And no-one’s to blame
We’re few as those daisies
That bloom half a day

She’s only dead
She’s only dead
She’s only only only only dead
She’s only dead
