Belle of the Ball

Most people who say I love you
They don’t mean it
Doctors have proven it
Don’t tell me I never loved life whole
Until I thought I could lose it

I drink imported coffee
I have my milk on the rocks
You should apologize to me
For being so boring

Belle of the Ball
On a float above air
Cloudless doll bodies
Turn down and stare
Don’t recognize this flavor in my blood

Jump in the pool with me
With your clothes on
Sunday afternoon
We’ll have macaroons & lemonade
Feel my pulse burning

What have you done to me this time?
You ask me to love you
I would
But I don’t want to

Alone In Her Dream

She puts her hat on
Rain is falling
Rolls to the diner
Strangers calling
Keep on Smiling
Keep on Laughing
(I just need another night with you)

Waits for the bus
Three in the morning
Leans out the window
Autumn fading
Keep on Smiling
Keep on Laughing
(I just need another night with you)

She wipes her face clean every night
Reads a good book to sleep
Alone in her dream

One year has gone now
Candles glowing
Gifts all around her
They mean nothing
Keep on Smiling
Keep on Laughing
(I just need another night with you)

She wipes her face clean every night
Reads a good book to sleep
Alone in her dream

I looked around
Can't find you near
Try as I've done
But time just passes by
Nothing left
But to close my eyes

She puts her hat on
Rain is falling
Rolls to the diner
Strangers calling
Keep on Smiling
Keep on Laughing
(I just need another night with you)

With you
With you
With you
