lyrics

The horoscope read “You’re better off dead”
Dear Scorpio: just let it go. This hasn’t been your week.
So don’t look inside. There’s no Cracker Jack prize
and the fortune cookie’s lucky numbers are all 13s.
Don’t think I’ll play the lottery with that.

Lately I’ve been passing the time
with paper plane confessions, self impressions and neckties.
I’ve swallowed my words and choked on my pride.
I’ve learned too many lessons and said too many goodbyes.
It’s safe to say I’ve realized

This is not one of my better days.
But it’s okay ‘cause I found you.

Nobody’s claimed this horse with no name
that ran off in the darkness. Now I’m drowning in the rain.
These broken bones just want to go home,
bark at the moon and lick these wounds until the coast is clear.
Or maybe I could disappear.

Some angels don’t have wings.
They wear skinny jeans and watch re-runs on TV.
I’m losing touch. I’ve lost so much.
But I’ve got everything I need.
