Finding piece in chaos

My biggest turn on

Has nothing to do with flesh

When I’m sitting on a bomb

And living in a test


I see myself quiet

Curled up on the side of the bed

Your gentle touch helps fight it

And this is what you’ll have said


“Baby, you’re so awesome

You hold me up so high

Your soul is oh so handsome

I will love you until I die


If things are tough for you right now

I’ll tell you what I’ll do

I’ll try to explain just how

Because, honey, I adore you


If you need my strength

I’ll lend it all to you

If your day needs more length

Well, I’ll see what I can do


Tomorrow when you come home

I’ll be waiting here for you

To return the love you’ve shown

I’ll gladly wear your shoe


For you’ve given me all

Even when you had none to give

I want to be there to cushion your fall

Because without you I just can’t live”


Then, you’ll gently touch my skin

And whisper in my ear

“Honey, you’re at the bottom of your bin,

Take from mine, my dear.”
