black curtains lyrics – tear garden

cancel the wedding renounce all the vows
i shall suck on those kisses ride on a cow
to the monastery high over there in the clouds
silent for 25 years
i saw you collide with the history teacher
watched finger tips brush over coffee and nietzche
if he is your type who am i to beseech you
to stay here for 25 years
you tell him i cared say i was earthy
steadfast and honest but not really worthy
see how i feel when you’re bleeding for mercy
maybe in 25 years
stones in my heart there’s a lump in my throat
spare a cent for the misfit dime for his goat
i’ll love you and leave you my favorite coat
had it for 25 years
black curtains
wish me well
