Constanza

Written by: Black Eyed Susan

I don’t need the flowers, vases
Sure they’re pretty on the table 
But they’re proof we live a fable 

Trips to warm, exotic places
Could bring the love that we let go 
Back to us; we can take it slow

All I want are your embraces
Let’s try a few, to remember
Where we were, just last September

I know you’ve been other places -
I’m asking you to give them up
A year’s gone by, a year too much

With them around, I am faceless
Please try to see me, here, instead
Rekindle this love; leave their beds




I don’t need the flowers, vases
Trips to warm, exotic places
All I want are your embraces
I know you’ve been other places -
With them around, I am faceless
