Lovers like Baby Teeth

Love looks good from afar

I lose lovers like baby teeth,

but you are a wisdom tooth even time won't heal.

Our memories are worth their weight in gold to me,

while they were worth less than a penny to you.

But now my heart is torn apart with pain..

While I was in love with you,

you were in love with yourself.

It quilted my face with tears.

Yes, I've lost lovers like baby teeth,

you're a wisdom tooth so sore,

it stopped my from tasting true love.

Your love only looked good from afar,

like a poison apple glistening in the sunlight.

Yes, I lose lovers like baby teeth,

but they're only a memory now.

You'll never be completely gone,

And that, perhaps, is the greatest injustice of all.
