Holly was adored, all crowned in fleur; she cracked my head.
As she leaves, to my relief she asks, “[when] could I come back?”
Through a single-pane, you’ve probably said enough by now
For the neighbors to wonder just who you care about.
And, you know, they’re not going anywhere.
No, I know, it’s not going anywhere.
Holly was adorned but found all sorts of bitter men.
Dreaming light and petit fours – it’s not where I’m at.
It’s like I’ve left my head at home for someone else to bake,
Pour in wine, and who knows what other sweetness waits?
But I know it’s not going anywhere,
Oh, I know it’s not going anywhere.
“Holy Wars Indoors,” the news reports, and so depends.
“Wait, I need you more,” is my first thought, anyhow –
Do I have another home, while mine is roared awake
By motorcyclists, by now – I’d hope – miles away?
And I know it’s not going everywhere,
Oh, I know they’re not going anywhere.
