Darling, you're a vixen:

fall in love with a poet
listen to johnny cash
and then come crying to me
saying how you recreated the blues
coat your nicotine with some new age doctrine
revolt and then relapse
land yourself in a crisis of dead ends
and then make that collect call
for me to come bail you out
flirt with danger
walk on the edge of the world
but don't lose that incentive
that your eyes will cause the atlantic
to denounce all its ever known
of color and purity
bathe with the riches
then walk among the broken and torn
live your entire life
to earn the right to say
i'm older now
but i can't change you
