Tulips

    You sweet-talk something

    I’ll tell you one thing

    You’re just a showman

    A serial charmer

    I’ll disarm you

    ‘fore you strike again

     

    What’s your business signing off with kisses?

    Cause you don’t just send anyone messages from the sky

    Making eyes 

    More than once

    More than twice

     

    I would take it as a cue but maybe my interpretation is askew

    Can I ask you about the Tulips?

    Are you this affectionate in all your friendships?

     

    It doesn’t really matter anyway

    It’s probably for the best

    And I’ll give it a rest

    Then I’ll make this mistake again and again and again

     

    Your subtle hinting

    Your words misleading

    And I’m trying everything to make it interesting

    I wrote down every date

    I helped you celebrate

    I tried

     

    Memories written

    Totally smitten to me

    Not to you, probably

    But I mistook your disengagement for timidity

    Don’t you see that twenty-two was more like twenty-waiting-for-you

     

    And I’m glad

    I had fun

    But I’m done

    Though I’m not, yet

     

    And I’m sorry I probably should’ve been more vocal

    But I’m this way - I keep my feelings local

     

    It doesn’t really matter anyway

    It’s probably for the best

    And I’ll give it a rest

    Then I’ll make this mistake again and again and again

     

    Again and again and again

    And again

     

    Say that you won’t, save your breath, don’t leave me in the dark, humiliated

    Say that you won’t, save your breath, don’t leave me in the dark, humiliated

    Say that you won’t, save your breath, don’t leave me in the dark, humiliated

    Say that you won’t, save your breath, don’t leave me in the dark, humiliated

    Leave me in the dark, humiliated.
