Sway

April 29, 1992
happiness was still waiting
for a perfect enemy
in the battle of one

Belladonna eyes, can you love me?
I want to dance with somebody
dedicated to the sway of my dysfunctions

Because itís all Iíve ever wanted
but Iím sick of it all
in the immortal love-me, love-me dream
of bony hips and Angelina Jolie lips

Because thereís nothing sweet about me
and the planets bend between us
in our own private galaxy of black holes
Ďcause weíre just infra-red silhouettes after all
green with envy in the dark
pretending weíre peachy when good enough
just isnít good enough
and the only ones we sway with
are ourselves
