well i’d breath in your skin once the soap smell was gone
when we’d lie around the house with the radio on
but naive little me, oh the innocent fawn
never realized i had you on loan

if i could bottle that smell i could sustain this old smile
like a puff from the bowl it might numb me a while
i’d drink you like wine but all i’d taste is the bile
from the indifference i heard in your tone
don’t leave me here on my own

well you left with a fanfare a big ole’ parade
a scene at the palace, your impetuous slave
couldn’t keep his mouth shut even after forbade
for he dreamed of a seat at your throne

well this must have amused you, a jester was he
to dance in your presence desperate to see
just one glimpse in his eyes be it love or pity
but none such human a gesture was shown
don’t leave me here on my own

well i’d like to recall you as underworld bound
with cursed, virtuous pets you keep chained to the ground
a hades spawned creature with snakes all around
turning all of your suitors to stone

and i’d like to believe i’ve escaped from your hold
fleeing misery, demonous tortures untold
ah but if i could tame you the treasures behold
will remain to me ever unknown
don’t leave me here on my own

well my talent is wasted, my wit’s unresolved
i’ve doubled my ante, i’ve scratched and i’ve clawed
and i’m battered and beaten like some back alley dog
made of nothing but skin and bone

so i’ll write down a letter, i’ll sing and i’ll pray
and it will help to console me in some self indulged way
so fuck you my darling, i’ll see you someday
when a sturdier heart i have grown
cause you left me here on my own
