if at first you don’t succeed, find another place to bleed,
I thought that you would stay with me, aka, not meant to be,
the devil and the deep blue see are here to keep me company,
they wonder when you’re coming back? aka too much to ask
+++ writin’ down your number on a dollar bill,
+++ I started goin’ under, now I think I will
+++ sleep a little later to avoid the chill, aka an unpaid bill,
+++ and I’m wakin’ up for breakfast in the afternoon,
+++ pourin’ milk & sugar on my sense of doom,
+++ I’ll walk around and try to fill an empty room,
+++ aka the lack of you, aka, the lack of you..

a proverb for the less than wise, I’m late to bed, later to rise,
I lost my head, but not your eyes, and that’s aka a compromise,
so if at first you don’t succeed, your absence is your victory,
my ghosts and angels all agree, they’re aka your memory,
+++ writin’ down your number on a dollar bill,
+++ I started goin’ under, now I think I will
+++ sleep a little later to avoid the chill, aka an unpaid bill,
+++ and I’m wakin’ up for breakfast in the afternoon,
+++ pourin’ milk & sugar on my sense of doom,
+++ I’ll walk around and try to fill an empty room,
+++ aka the lack of you, aka, the lack of you…
