love takes longer.

Summer of hangovers

"My wallet is depressed"

Dark and dirty alleys

Forget the rest and get undressed

Sharp and lonely allies

"A girl like you goes to church?"

You can tell me all the lies

But the distance doesn't work

In truth I didn't try

But what's a lover worth?

At least a damn reply

I'm sorry, I'm a jerk

Truthfully, a couple drinks

And I'm already at my worst

I so enjoyed your company

But put impatience first

"In the interest of honesty"

You just can't bear to be with me

I guess that's fair, but truthfully

Is there ever a guarantee?

Lust, like dust, disappears on a breeze

Love takes longer

Feel free to disagree

Found you on a bench outside

Underneath a tree

Dark and dirty allies

Make poor mates, truthfully
