White Noise

Here you are
The words 
To the melodies I've heard.

Two long piano tunes 
I couldn't make it through.
They lacked something 
Something I want to give you. 

Here you are 
The words I need to say 
Can't do it any other way. 

The first night I felt you slip away
I asked you
please stay 
Stay till I fall asleep. 

You smiled and then I knew. 

So here you are 
The words you deserve 
I know it's not my love you long for. 
The mattress on the floor.  
The closed door. 
And the muffled TV sound. 
So here are my words 
my boy .

Just a white noise.
