had to be every disco in Roppongi 1992 in the back in the dark booth gin and a caterpillar cure making out like the teenagers dead end the 110 dead ends in Pedro half of the towns in western Ohio after 500 miles in a borrowed Mercedes Benz dead ends in the basement bars of west central Berlin you say you love me I know it won’t last I know you want it to you can’t take me without my wild past and I only wanted you you said it’s funny what I lost when I was finding myself you said I never cared about anything else now I’m always sorry baby I’m so far behind I got so many sins and so little time you say you love me I know it can’t last I know you want it to you can’t take me without my wild past and I forgive you you say you’ve changed if I’d only see you you say you can love my wild past you say this time baby we can make it last but I don’t believe you this time I don’t believe you
Margin Notes 03:32
said “it’s new yet, too soon to regret at least it’s a kind of change here the heat works some days have no words I don’t find I have a lot to say” what makes a good trade who talks and who takes does anyone come out okay I walked so far I felt my feet were failing me I talked out loud until the sound came back to me I never figured out what the point of it was I loved the way you wrote in pencil in the margin notes 00000, Roger Mexico I never got past the part where Margherita punches a clock sounds like a bar fight looks like a bus stop might be lacking as a place to rest you like the sidewalks you watch the rooftops said you never know what to expect a secret smoker a night sky watcher all your neighbors on the 4th of July we might never end up where we think we have been heading we might have to draw a different line a good talker a long walker you always like to see the city slow I might be out of line but I know I’m out of reasons I can’t let myself just let it go my good friend I know its a bad time can I give you a call can I maybe stop by I’m way off the deep end I’ve been drifting a long time I want the calm between waves I always crash with the tide what good is intention when you can’t move in a straight line just end up back where you were or even farther behind you let me down easy talk me out of my mind sitting up on your roof under a million bright lights yeah my good friend I know it’s a bad time can I give you a call can I maybe stop by
