I Can’t Let Go
Dreaming back through life,
Your time-and mine...
I'm in a fix And you are out,
Death let you out,
Death had the mercy,
You are done with the century...
I, even I, still can't let you go...
For to let you go
Is myself destroyed
Your time-and mine atrophied
My jealousy, my confusion…
You dead…slave to death?
You dead…at the mercy of death?
Done with the hot larva of life
Yeah, in a fix I am
Yet still I can't let you go...
My mouth is burning.
Yeah, with words of a woman in pain.
My eyes turn to the immoderate past.
