Clean Up This Mess

about

Once upon a time this song had a cello part, but it's now lost to the ages and I wrote a new bass part to take its place. I'm not sure it ended up as majestic as I sort of intended, but I still have a soft place in my heart for it.

lyrics

I saw it all over your face before you were even through the door.
I know you tried to erase everything that went before.
I won't ask you for a week, and you won't answer for a year.
And when I try to be weak, that's when you try to speak.

And tell me everything you see.
And everything you know.
And everything you wish you could forget.
Why don't you try not to speak?

I couldn't answer all your questions.
I didn't even want to try.
And when you start in again you're always leaving me behind.

redacted:
(Is that how you meant it?
Was that supposed to hurt?
You can't possibly think I'll be quiet.)

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
