i fucking love the opening of pixies’ “here comes your man”

is arrogance of
still youthful for his age
a thing
i should be
aware of
how naive
but well-intentioned
i was
when
i
wrote
love
cause
babe
this be some
bomb-ass emotion
right here
did you
wait
did you say
bomb-ass
i don’t know
a lot
of people
were talking
so i tried
to share
my 2 cents
but
the fuck
can you do
with a penny
these days
i know
better
fits
i know
better
hearts
i know
i know
you
have favourites
like
when
i cried love
like it was
some kind of panacea
believing as
only
a romantic believes
fully
completely
i cried love
and heard it back
sweet
strong
music
never asking
if it was
an echo
i cried, love
mourning
i’m not sure
for what was
or wasn’t
it was
wasn’t
yet
i cried love
wanting then
as i want
(and have)
now
for
not as naive as they seem
day dreams
to be shown to be
real
i cried love
as listening
proved
lonely
