i said these loose ends need mending
you're playing jump rope with my feelings.
i said these loose ends need mending,
i always have to repeat myself when i'm with you.
and i've seen how this unfolds,
in my dreams i'm feeding you the most poetic lines.
but in reality you speak like you've always done.
you're kind but you're not there when it counts.
you're mother but not when it counts.
