Pretty Even

She remembers the times
he rubbed it all in her face.
Car payment, shopping sprees,
fancy meals, his fancy place.

Every argument led to one direction,
“I’ve done so much for you;
I’m the answer to your equation.”

Repetitive words
he said so often times,
made her question decisions
she made in her prime times.

Guilt, insecurity, loneliness, and misery,
She raced against life,
trying to change destiny.

Maybe he was right;
maybe she owed him a hundred.
He picked her up, after all,
when her days were thundered.

Pounding her head
with the hammer’s claws
until the impact
cut loose the gauze.

Countless years with no elation
were indeed grounds for cancellation.

Pretty even, she thought,
it had been paid off.

Exes: You’ll Be Alright

First comes the problems,
then it's the fights,
then the denial,
then, boom – goodbye.
One remote day, though,
healed over time,
you become friends again,
hang out 'til sunrise.
You'll be alright.

The Way You Work It

me quemas

No diggity! Actually, inspired by a different song that I hadn’t heard in forever and I’m addicted again. It’s called Me Haces Tanto Bien by Amistades Peligrosas (in Spanish, obviously). Here’s a bit of it:

Enséñame a bajar tu cremallera
ya sabes donde voy,
ya sabes que he pasado la frontera
arrancando algún botón,
que tú ya sabes que te pido más madera
y tú pides más nivel,
ya sabes como mantener la hoguera
ya sabes como sabe ya mi piel.

Tú me quemas con la punta de tus dedos
tus manos hacen llagas en mi piel
me abraso con tu lengua que es de fuego
la sangre hierve, o no lo ves?
que tú ya sabes que me tienes cuando quieras
ya sabes como soy
ya sabes que me entra la primera
ahora me sale algo mejor
me haces tanto bien…

Look it up if you like — it’s pretty freaking sexy!

Take it Back

Don’t make me be, take it back baby
I don’t wanna be, I don’t need to be in love
Hear me baby, I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna, I can’t, I don’t need to be
I don’t wanna be in love baby
Take it back, take it away from me
Take it away baby, I can’t handle it, I don’t wanna be

I can’t believe that I am the last one
The last one to know what the hell is going on
I can’t believe that I’m the last one to know
Say it ain’t so, please, please.

–Joss Stone – The Last One to Know
