The Black Widow

from by The Broken Bicycles



Today, I'll write you, a song that's happy
And fills my heart with butterflies
Tomorrow I'll write another about
How in the end one of us cries

When sooner or later
We're not too blind to see our lies
And our love is rotting
We can't see through the swarm of flies
For now we'll feel the tingle linger on our lips
Our fingers tangle Into something that feels like bliss
Until the day we do, we don't, we almost kiss
One day with outstretched arms we'll reach
and barely miss

And so it goes
In patterns or rows
The bell curve of love
Can be graphed so well it flows
It sews, unseams
As all our hopes and dreams
Jump out our windows
