Everything you said was true
Everything you did was you
Everything I started with her
Ended on an oily stage where
I wrote elegiac stanzas for you
I hope and pray that they come true

He found God
In a parking lot
And you did not
I, I headed for the coastal reef
Regions of mind
To see what I'd find
But I do understand
Why they're looking at you
