Ooo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo, ooo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo From a half sleep slipping softly ‘hind my eyes an ancient longing for the space with no location But I can find the signal here Lines are crossed of will and fear It is ringing loud and clear if you let it, if you let it if you let it, if you let the noise disappear The noise disappear From a moonbeam I can’t hear you or feel the limits you put on yourself and those around you You deserve more, you deserve more But you can find that signal dear Lines are crossed of will and fear It is ringing loud and clear if you let it, if you let it if you let it, if you let the noise disappear

Where’d the ghost fly, where Where’d the ghost fly I know it’s so How do you spend your time How do you spend I need to know You must live in a clean space You must live in a clean space I am not much but a child filthy and spoiled But I can’t sit on your white couches tonight Those angular seats will never be right for my hips hold a pain  doesn’t match my age and I might seem a mess but I know how to treat myself and a lover, and a lover, and a lover, ooo Where do we go when we die Do we stay here Do we want to know Will I know you in time Will I know more than I want to know You must live in a nice home You must work hard for what you own I am not much but a child filthy and spoiled But I can’t sit on your white couches I can’t sit on your white couches I can’t sit on your white couches tonight Those angular seats will never be right  for my hips hold a pain  doesn’t match my age and I might seem a mess but I know how to treat myself How to treat myself

Swing to me my love Close your eyes and trust in me to lead oooh safely from what you know where I must leave you on your own Self, self Why must my moxie embitter your tongue Experience made the one, who you love I loved you too through the hauntings Twice I watched as you left your body Saw insects crawl from your lungs They bit us both I itched you broke I tended to your wounds through and through and through Through and through and through But you could not give me what was mine Had to claim my body and my mind What I choose to do with them is fine fine, fine, fine Don’t let my moxie embitter your tongue Be proud support those you love I believe in you through and through and through Through and through and through But you could not give me what was mine Had to claim my body and my mind What I choose to do with them is fine fine, fine, fine

I am no peach to be plucked from the wing of a tree ripened and ready to be consumed by thee Though I’ve fed you love respectively sweet I plague the back of your tongue with instinctual grief

This thread between us I can’t wind to the spool like the knots caught around my toes when my room falls apart and I wind and break until all is given its place You estranged man come to visit in my sleep No matter the story I always receive your warm embrace when you’d bend your knees to be closer to me The best thing you ever gave

Thelma with her hair of salt and pepper used to rub my back with her aged and crooked fingers and how we miss her and that spark that never left her So many thoughts she had in those last quiet years of life, true love and her purpose here Not a drop of fear to join her best friend Such a shade of love hasn’t any end She divided her things with careful thought each year Each belonging left to sift in its place of her intention Well loved lists of who gets what and some unnamed stuff to be shared How Thelma cared in all her ways Letters sent still arriving after her final days Thelma with her hair of salt and pepper used to rub my back with her aged and crooked fingers and how we miss her She’s part of me forever ooo, ooo
