Knowing What's Ahead

-

Shatter like a dream

And then pick me up

__out of the wreckage of demands

Hold onto me like a thought

__that you once knew

Let the fire of our love

__die out like a cigarette

I know your head is full

__of other guys

Tell me once

I'll tell you twice

That pain temptations

__send a just reward

Oracles of dust will scatter

And an optimism will come

To shrink what was thought

__to be in the trees

Doubt me

And I will forever be your forgotten memory
