(Everyone’s heard thus record before.  Rainy days are easy writing days.  Day 179…)

Since I met you, I’ve begun to feel so strange every time I speak your name…

I’m beyond wondering what it is
And wonder what jewel it becomes when done
The pressure and heat your smile puts on my soul
Changing something valuable in my spirit like coal
Into The Hope Diamond
A love no one wants to have
They just visit to see its illumination

So yes
Like answered proposals from positions of begging
You’ve made questions I had for love rhetorical
Continuing to ask them only blackened what is pure
And baby
You’ve blown the soot off my heart
