You’ve got a new dress, you’re a quick change actress Your lipstick slides out of it’s sheath You’re my neon-veined day-glow dame, how do you speak With your tongue pressed so tight to your teeth?
You’ve got a lot of dead friends on this rock where we’re floating And there’s darkness ahead, but I think it’s worth noting We’re candles, we’re matches, we’re lights on a wire So come with me, please, be my Sylph set on fire
In all honesty, I expected to be So exceptionally unimpressed I do not trust kindness, in kindnesses lies are hid And oft topped with makeup and winningly dressed
But you’ve got a mind, and if you don’t mind me saying It resides in a beauty not slightly betraying You luminesce, I confess, I guess you’re no liar So come with me, please, be my Slyph set on fire
A song for the winter holidays (but really it could be a song for any time of year, it mentions most of the seasons :3).
Snowflakes melting on my tongue, Remind me while the night’s still young, Who turned out the stars?
There’s a train going north-west, And you know I always try my best. When the skies clear, I’ll be gone.
And the last you’ll hear from me Will be the last time that I see My home
Summer’s breezing on its way, And I don’t know if I’m gonna stay, But the lights here are brighter than most.
The Days are short and the nights are long, The moon is bright so I play along, But by daybreak I’ll be gone.
And the last you’ll hear from me Will be the last time that I see My home.
The greens are turning into brown, And it’s probably time that I left town, So I’ll leave you all to hibernate.
Winter’s getting on its way, Christmas’s been out in his sleigh, And the crocuses poke out their heads.
Thought I’d leave so long ago, But my roots are buried in the snow, Maybe this year there’ll be spring.
And the last you’ll hear from me Will be the first time that I greet The new year.
Funny story: when I first wrote this, I got all the way to the last stanza before realizing in all my season-descriptions, I forgot to include spring :P So I quickly wrote in a single line mentioning it, which thankfully wasn’t too out of place, heh.
