FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH for what it is worth, it could have been worse than to drop to your knees in grandmother's church but you say you were framed, you don't know your name you left your ID on a fast-moving train for passion or pride you can't pick a side the distance as wide as a cross-country drive but you tried to act smart, you played from the heart you painted your face like a tennessee star and they might believe, like all other thieves you'll have cash in your hand when you get up to leave but you leant me your gown and all that i found was a picture of you when your hair was still brown this city has changed, the reservoir's drained the streets where we walked have been torn and repaved now you cough when you speak, you kiss on the cheek you sing in your sleep like you learned it from me the things that we've tried to say or survive wait inside a hotel room on beverly drive you could take them all back if you had the map to guide you from here to each possible past

TAKE THE ROPE take the rope from where your neck was sold and you'll be spinning like a top all we wanted was your golden shoulder so we're gonna dig it up you're a silhouette against a summer lawn your shadow doubles in the street doing work you know is gonna split your jaw because you take it for the team you didn't need to shrug it off there didn't need to be a cause we didn't mean to even call it love when all we gave you was a round of red applause the stitch was stolen from its seam the river vanished into steam and you won't ever have to eat or breathe you're just a statuette you're just a silver sheen - claire cronin
