the taste of beautiful

I fell empty
searching for your voice to drop
I fell empty
hoping for the car to stop
and I begged to lift you
from the distance that I saw coming

all the details in the lesson
all the background obsessions
fading away
but on my lips
the taste of beautiful

I went broke
waiting for the phone to ring
I went broke
wishing for that dream to begin
and I learned to remove you
from the empty spaces that I fell into

It’s all that we are to live in this mind
one false step changes the reflection
but not the taste of beautiful

all the details in the lesson
all the background obsessions
fading away
but on my lips
the taste of beautiful
