So I ended up a cheater
An aspiring heart-bleeder
A classic oversleeper
Every word I ever said came out me like a catchphrase
A chiseled jar of mayonnaise

But these new pills should help the jitters
Take one every morning and take one with your dinner
Fall asleep sex-chaffed and withered
Everybody came and nothing ever hurt her

When we were all tangled up, your hands in mine
You cut open your finger
I was a reckless kid just counting dimes
And a lousy pair of scissors
But at least we walked away forever better kissers

So when you’ve run out of endeavors,
When you’re finished being clever,
You traveled or whatever
I hope you still talk over movies,
Sleep through every story,
And cry at season finales

Because the time we spend’s not reimbursed when it drips out through your fingers
And floods your head to quench your thirst
Like the Mississippi River
But at least we walk away forever better kissers
