She Left The Lights On
She left the lights on. She wanted somebody to think she was home.
She left the lights on. Suggesting her presence, she busied the phone…
She left the lights on. How could you have ever possibly known
There was nobody there – Nobody home?
Nobody cared to sound the alarm
You laid her right down. She wanted some money but there was none to be found
She laid her rights down, suggesting her pleasure in satisfied drones
You’d later bite down. How could you have ever possibly known
There was nobody there – Nobody warm?
Nobody dared pick up the phone…
Honey on the table – wine on your tongue,
The milk offered to you by the Forbidden One – See the problem?
Honey on the bed, and wine on the floor,
The milk turns to gravel as you crawl through the door – See the problem?
She left the lights on – She wanted somebody – Your body she found.
You laid your rights down: the right to be right when the shit comes around
She’d later bite down. How could she have ever possibly known
there was nobody there – nobody known
nobody rare who loved her, alone?
