pants on fire

i spent all those days
hopin you'd change
every new thought
locked up in its cage

i know that you lied
it must burn inside
to owe me the money
to owe me the time

each hurt you impart
with your stumbling heart
is driving the two of us
further apart

there's time to amend
to make peace as a friend
to get straight & unbent
and feel brand new again

but meanwhile we wait
and all i can do
is throw buckets & heaps
of forgiveness at you
