Let me replace it

I’d take down the world for you
lay down, stand up, scream,
anything,
for you.

You can’t bottle the shame,
I can’t drink it either, but I’ll try
just the same.
I’ve forgotten who I am
to be near you,
to just hear your voice,
I had nothing, I had
no winning for losing,
what kind of life is that,
who gives a fuck about choice?

Tell me – who are you now?
In love with someone else?
Feeling oh so powerful, strong arm
me, down to nothing…
feel good now?

Do you ever see me
in that lonely mirror?
Do you ever feel my breasts
on your back?  Arms around you?

Of course not,
What kind of a fool was
I?
