lyrics

two a.m. my knees skinned
leaning into metal dumpster
craving pizza, bagels, oatmeal
rescued from the hotel breakfast bar
ignored traffic lights hum
and bike screech down on baxter street
i could fall, i could die,
there is fear but fuck it--pedal faster!
remember when you were 9 & hadn't yet touched death?

tights torn, short skirt,
late nights & early dark morns,
sleeping in slow days scribbled away,
love notes sent in liquor bottles
vodka slides like water down my ragged throat,
my empty belly,
staining sleeves and tattoos fade
rooftop dancing laughing screaming
i wouldn't be able to do this if you were with me, little one
but sometimes i don't think i can do without you
