Every Time I Leave You

 

Are you aware that some of those stars
Have been dead for years?
I don’t know if that’s important,
But I know that I care. 

 

Astoundingly, you move me.
(Influence me and defuse me)

 

But darling, with your powerful eyes.
And most thrilling smile
(The sexiest I’ve ever seen)

 

There lies one small, tiny
(Gaping) problem.
And I am so (very terribly) sorry
But it just so happens that – 

 

Doubt creeps in
Every time I leave you.
It’s like the frame of my departure
Is contained within a question mark
(a how do you do to a how do you do to a – 

 

Quite frankly, I just don’t care.)
