One & Only

met you in your shadow dark
absinthe bar
you shaved your head
it left a scar
we bunkered down
windowless room
our hateful sex
i love, you lose
you bathed me
laid me down clean sheet
we took half of that blue pill each
our vacant dates
carnival show
that ferris wheel
our highest low

i should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your neck
instead i believed you when you said that we were back to back
and now i've never been one to ask for a hand
never been one to take what was given
never seen love so cold and undressed
never lived life so lifeless

oh, my one and only
only leaves me lonely
only leaves me lonely
oh, if i could only
leave my one and only

read all of your movie scripts with murder scenes
familiar faces all i see
my happy made you sad and sly
your honest made me bed for lies
a temper tantrums bloated world
staccato man and limber girl
the rippling walls
the paper moon
the dial tone
the dancers' doom

and i should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your throat
instead i believed you when you said you still had hope
and now i've never been one to ask for a hand
never been one to take what was given
never seen love so cold and undressed
never lived life so lifeless

oh, my one and only
only leaves me lonely
only leaves me lonely
oh, if i could only
leave my one and only

your creeping creature
my bloodless heart
you fill me up
my shadow dark
i love you like i
love myself like
no one like
nobody else

i should have believed you when you said you felt the rope around your neck
instead i believed you when you said that we were back to back
and now i've never been one to ask for a hand
never been one to take what was given
never seen love so cold and undressed
never lived life so lifeless

oh, my one and only
only leaves me lonely
only leaves me lonely
oh, if i could only
leave my one and only
