lyrics

Night dreams
how they cling to us
thick and sweet
how they trouble us

and I woke to a dark house
again

barely in the hall
he drops the keys
I wake and turn
walk down to meet him

I know a woman’s worth
but have given mine
again, again, again

skirting the lawn
with his tennis ball
training the dog
how to beg
I tried as well
but didn’t know
what to say

dreams fulfilled
but the edges worn with
drawn out grievances
long nights
and the sullen dinners

yes I know a woman’s worth
but have given mine
again, again, again

I’d better keep the rest

there it is
no shining mantelpiece
there it is
in the stars!
