Suede

suede. you always felt like suede.
there are days I feel your twin.
peekaboo. hiding underneath your skin.
jets. are revving yes revving
from a central source and this.
has power over me. not because you feel
something or don’t feel something
for me but because.
mass. so big. it can swallow swallow
her whole star intact.

call me ’evil’ call me ’tide is on your side’
anything that you want.
anybody knows you can conjure anything
by the dark of the moon. boy.
and if you keep your silence
silencer on you’ll talk yourself
right into a job. out of a hole. into my
bayou.

suede.

I’m sure that you’ve been briefed
my absorbtion lines. they are frayed
and I fear. my fear is greater than my faith
but I walk. the missionary way.
you always felt like suede.
there are days I am your twin. peekaboo.
hiding underneath your skin.
jets. are revving yes revving
from an ether twist.

call me ’evil’ call me ’tide is on your side’
anything that you want.
anybody knows you can conjure anything
by the dark of the moon. boy.
and if you keep your silence
silencer on you’ll talk yourself
right into a job. out of a hole. into my
bayou.

suede

oh little sister I hope you didn’t feel that way
oh little sister I’m glad you came, and I said
oh little sister I hoped you wouldn’t feel that way
oh little sister, oh again when I said
oh little sister I hope you didn’t feel that way and
oh I’m still glad you came, I said
oh little sister I wished you didn’t feel that way
and oh little girl I’d do the same
oh little sister I hoped you wouldn’t feel that way
oh I said I wished
oh little sister you’ll forgive me one day
you’ll forgive me one day

suede.
