Song #1 – Posies

Talking on the phone at night
You never tell me why
When it all goes down
And you know shit gets around
And rumors are true
I’ll never have a friend quite as lovely again

And I’m not responsible for the ending that I know is inevitable

Yes, I understand you’re happy now
And I understand your hand-me-down towel
Yes, I understand you’re happy now
Better to be happy than to never know

Well it pins me to
An exaggerated view —
Correct me if I’m wrong
And it’s man’s best friend
And the tin’s empty again
Degrade yourself now
I never took a pill wasn’t guaranteed to thrill

And I ought to know you standing up sober
I ought to know your black & white look
I ought to know just like your dad told you
I ought to know mistakes you mis… took

You can paint it black
You can use thickest shellac
And still be see-through
And with everything I say
I mean it in the best way
To have it be true

And it’s not impossible
for a friend to heed the slack behind the pull

Yes, I understand you’re happy now
And I understand your hand-me-down towel
Yes, I understand you’re happy now
Better to be happy

And I ought to know you standing up sober
