MINERAL LOVE

I got
nothing to clarify
just some
lovely imperfections (oh yes)

I’ll get
around to it by and by
and then
you’ll see (yes, yes)

a mineral love
is all I got
a mineral love
is all I got

Again
you won’t find things you care where they were
before
your storm has passed

cause words
that don’t make us better people
are not
worth saying

our mineral love
is all we got
our mineral love
is all we got

and I wish we were
better than this
but we’re not my love
have to make it with what we got
and there you are
gazing at me
and as I run off
you start to reel
