Don’t Fool Yourself

Every notion
Each declined emotion
Will give you up in time
Each dependent
Is a tiled addendum
To your outspoken arms

Don’t fool yourself
You’re clever but oh
Don’t fool yourself
You’re special but oh
Don’t fool yourself

Each distraction
Brings a closeness
That you can’t knit
With stolid fists

Like a candle
You’re an island
To which people will stick.

Don’t fool yourself
You’re clever but oh
Don’t fool yourself
You’re special but oh
Don’t fool yourself

Fall on my heartstrings
My precious heartstrings
They’re never going to let you down
They’re never going to let you down
