Still picture

You live like a small town in my belly,

empty during day and occupied at night

you party in my mind like it’s a discotheque,


turn down the volume of the voices in my head,

lay down with me and hold me close

just for a night because today is all I may ever have

fingers locked, maybe the closest to dating you will ever get

I cant make you love me if friendship is all i will ever get

and I want to hold unto that like it’s the last breath i have in me

I want to wear my heart out for you

but also I need to tuck my sleeve in to keep you close.


Hey, you, still picture on my wall

that’s all the covering I will ever get.

the only love I will ever know.
