Out Of The Arm Of One Love..

 out of the arm of one love
and into the arms of another 
I have been saved from dying on the cross
by a lady who smokes pot
writes songs and stories
and is much kinder than the last,
much much kinder,
and the sex is just as good or better.
it isn't pleasant to be put on the cross and left there, it is much more pleasant to forget a love which didn't work as all love finally doesn't work .
it is much more pleasant to make love along the shore in Del Mar in room 42, and afterwards sitting up in bed drinking good wine, talking and touching smoking listening to the waves .
I have died too many times believing and waiting, waiting in a room staring at a cracked ceiling wating for the phone, a letter, a knock, a sound .
going wild inside while she danced with strangers in nightclubs .
out of the arms of one love and into the arms of another it's not pleasant to die on the cross, it is much more pleasant to hear your name whispered in the dark.
