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.
