Grabs everything she can

Does not need a permanent man

Prowls clubs along the beach

                              Fuck                              

Shower

Brush teeth

Walks out the door

While her lover sleeps

Next Weekend

Repeat

197

Hit the reset button

 Stability is a bore

 You love me

But

 Obviously

Need more

Hit the reset button

Simple life

Has you down

 Safe

Always sound

Everything in order

You

Desperately

 Crave

 Continuous disorder

Hit the reset button

Danger

Turns you on

 Swim away

 My beautiful swan

Compose

A new song

Hit the reset button

191

Watching the water

Run down the drain

I understand your pain

Drop the bum

Move on

Go have some fun

Grab your backpack

Hop on a jet

Southeast Asia

Is

An exotic place

To hang out

 And

 Forget

Soon

 You

Will be laughing again

Fresh

Happy

Wiser

Starting over

Without him

142

You’re irritated

I know that you are

May I offer you a chocolate bar?

Yes

Life is unfair

However

There is no need to despair

Bad luck comes and goes

At least you have beautiful toes

You say I’m a clown

Who only plays around

Come over here

 Take my hand

I’m going to set you free

and

Whisk us off to a secretive magical land

Hot night in Bahia

It was obvious she was hurt like me

Well into our bottle of Argentinean wine

Ana moved forward in her chair

Pulled back her hair

Looked directly into my eyes

Started to cry

Without saying another word

She took my hand

Led me over to the beach sand

and

Made this man feel young again.
