Bonny

I’ve spent the days of my vanity
I’m lost to heaven and I’m lost to earth
Didn’t give you minutes, not even moments

All my life in a tower of foil
Shaded feelings: I don’t believe you
When you were there before my eyes
No one planned it, took it for granted

I count the hours since you slipped away
I count the hours that I lie awake
I count the minutes and the seconds too
All I stole and I took from you, But
Bonny don’t live at home
Bonny don’t live at home
Words don’t hold you
Broken soldiers

All my silence and my strained respect
Missed chances and the same regrets
Kiss the thief and you save the rest
All my insights in retrospect – But
Bonny don’t live at home
Bonny don’t live at home
Bonny don’t live at home
Bonny don’t live at home
