Pink and Sorry

from Imaginary Country by John Alan Kennedy

lyrics

i can tell that you care about me
about as much as you care for yourself
and that is not a helluva lot
as i can tell by the way you wake up
every day so tired
every day so tired
with your eyes deep in debt

and they’re pink and sorry

as you squint at the sun, and moaning roll over
you reach out and then you pull down the shades
until you’re hidden in the loving arms of shadow
until you’re folded in the loving arms of shade
and you reach for your cigarettes
it’s the third pack since early last night

and you shake til you shudder
you shake til you shudder
and you pick up your cell to see what you’ve missed
and you shuffle to the toilet to sit down and piss
then it’s off to the fridge
empty as ever
empty as ever
and it’s cold but it feels alright for someone...

...pink and sorry

now it’s half an hour later and you’re back from the deli
sippin’ at your regular before you remember i’m there
and i can tell that you care about me
about as much as you care for yourself
and that is not a helluva lot
as i can tell by the way you wake up or by the way you don’t
every day so tired
every day so tired

pink and sorry
pink and sorry...
