cheap


we found love in a dimly lit room
in the corner of my house
drenched in the smell of perfume
coming from you
your arms around me
in the middle of the night
and now I can’t get to sleep
but I won’t lose this sleep
over something I can’t feel if this is real or if it’s cheap
no I won’t lose this sleep

we found love patiently
I’m sorry to keep you hopeful dear you know how I can be
I’ll take your words
you said to me
I’ll keep them in my pocket if you ever flee

but I won’t lose this sleep
over something I can’t feel if this is real or if it’s cheap
no I won’t lose this sleep

don’t fall asleep I’m wide awake
is there something I could say
I found your letters left in the doorway
I took them up one by one and I read them thumb to thumb
I took your picture and set it next to mine
I tried to stay I had to leave I don’t find love so easily I’m not one to wear my heart out on my sleeve
so take my shirt or take me in
I could be your next of kin
and tell me would you do it all (tell me would you do it all)
tell me would you do it all again
Would you do it all again?
all again

we found love in a dimly lit room in the corner of my house
drenched in the smell of perfume coming from you
your arms around me in the middle of the night
and now I can’t get to sleep
but I won’t lose this sleep
over something I can’t feel if this is real or if it’s cheap
no I won’t lose this sleep
