She weaves secrets in her hair
She's deep as a well.

And my heart sinks with the sun.
And a new day has not yet begun.
So, anyway,
Just sitting on your porch
The sweetest decline.

They're just things we haven't done yet.
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet.
Another day draws away,
It's like catching snow on my tongue.

There I was,
Drink in the sweetest decline.
Sober mind
What are regrets?
They're just lessons we haven't learned yet.
You can't pin this butterfly down.
