FOR MARLON

Soko


I broke my toes
'Cause when I'm sad
I get as clumsy as a stupid clum
But you're way to young to understand
And I'm way to desperate to be sane

So I fall for you
Like a fool for gold
'Cause you look so pure
And I love your voice
I can hear the cracks
Of your youthful heart
And it makes me wanna be
A part of that

'Till I said "what's there
On your arm"
You said "Don't look
Please, don't ask
I know, you won't like
To know that
I'm a recovering addict
And sometimes I relapse
But if I get sober
Would you swear to love me?
If I get sober
Could you fall for me?"

And as I was ready
to doubt
The will has been
Left to draught
I thought
To never, ever trust
Someone for who drugs come first

And I think there's no love
But just proof of love
And you just proved me
That you never care
It's been raining now for three days

And I remember you said
With me, you felt
The best that you ever, ever felt
And I think that
No drugs can we place
The warmth and tenderness
That we embraced

But if you get sober
I'll be here for you
If you get sober
I'll be yours for good
