Each love leaves a wound
and I’m lucky to say I have but a few
still paying my dues
for every night I spent full of regret
each love leaves a wound

unbroken in my longest days
unloved in my saddest nights

I gave my heart to the blind
I gave my trust to the vile
I lost my faith in a world
I gave my love to the low
I gave my lips to the sick
I lost my faith in a world

jealousy’s face is denial
envy’s touch is the kind

it reminds me of my longest days
and my saddest nights
unbroken unloved

friends spit curses like snakes.
