Circus Heart

by Rebecca Loebe

 

all the men that i love can never sleep

they stay up with their demons like they're tending sheep

moaning like wind whipping the hills

rattling bones against a bottle of pills

 

i tried to stay awake so i could referee

but eyelids get so heavy when you lecture me

the natural world, the state of your art

baby open your mouth, i want to jump in your heart

 

love me tonight

under the velvety light

of a moon that knows better

than asking me whether it's right

 

all the women i'm afraid of are counting greys

like seconds til the new year of their glory days

carefully concealing their busted parts

trying to keep their eyes off of my circus heart

 

it's swollen to the size of a county fair

off the coast of nova scotia, baby meet me there

i'll be the one in mud boots and braids

biding my time til i hear you say you'll

 

love me tonight

under the velvety light 

of a moon that knows better

than asking me whether it's right

to love me tonight

 

all the men that i love can never sleep

they tell me over coffee that it’s bittersweet

keeping the hours of scoundrels and mice

baby relax, let’s do this right

 

love me tonight

under the velvety light 

of a moon that knows better

than asking me whether it's right

to love me tonight

love me tonight

love me tonight
