IF YOU WERE HOME

  1. I'd be unsatisfied with your color
  2. Maybe I would paint you the color of sunshine,
  3. But we both know you are more like rain.
  4. Or like the dark brown of mud that you create after storming up my heart.
  5. If you were home
  6. I'd crawl every inch of the nasty floors with a toothbrush
  7. Perhaps then I can lie safely on the cold ground.
  8. If you were home
  9. I don't know why I would try to fix you,
  10. You were a fixer upper
  11. But I'm too worn out to fix.
