At the time I really was quite keen on the name


if you take away all the things you took from the things i gave then something somewhere just doesn't add up if the place i stayed reminds you of a hospital i'll explain they only nurse me because they have to because they're paid to painted in a corner you check-mate me if the love you gave seemed too mechanical that's ok we know people who prefer it that way and if nothing else gets saved then one day you'll treasure the pieces all the tiny scraps of paper remember we said we'd call our first born jesus you take it so graciously i take it so gratefully if i could take some leave from me then i'd escape from me too
