Wax Lips

I’m thinking about writing songs, I make up things that I just sing to myself, but I haven’t composed anything since high school (and those were really basic things).

The last time I saw you I kissed you on wax lips.

The last time I saw you, you put my hands on your hips.

The last time I saw you, we were ready to ditch

This world

For each other.

The last time I saw you we went out dancing

Partners and partners, but our eyes kept catching,

The last time I saw you, you kept on telling

Me that

I should remember

The last time I saw you we made the big plan,

The last time I saw you we were ready to land

The last time I saw you I thought I’d see you again.

I thought I’d see you again

Rabbit’s Heart

Put it on the ground where everyone can see it.

Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten.

Come here, put it there, little rabbit,

You’re life was meant to be short,

And mine so, so long.

 

I was the boot on your neck,

The trap in your hutch,

And you loved it until you were gone.

 

Now put your heart upon the ground where I can take it.

It was always meant to be mine,

Why did you hold out so long.

 

(Just working on rhythm, plus a couple lines that have been stuck in my head.)
