a thousand kisses deep

the ponies run, the girls are young
the odds are there to beat
you win a while, and then it’s done
your little winning streak
and summoned now to deal
with your invincible defeat
you live your life as if it’s real
a thousand kisses deep

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed
I’m back on boogie street
you lose your grip, and then you slip
into the masterpiece
and maybe I had miles to drive
and promises to keep
you ditch it all to stay alive
a thousand kisses deep

and sometimes when the night is slow
the wretched and the meek
we gather up our hearts and go
a thousand kisses deep

confined to sex, we pressed against
the limits of the sea
I saw there were no oceans left

for scavengers like me
I made it to the forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet
and then consented to be wrecked
a thousand kisses deep

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed
I’m back on boogie street
I guess they won’t exchange the gifts
that you were meant to keep
and quiet is the thought of you
the file on you complete
except what we forgot to do
a thousand kisses deep
