about

Oh, you obstinate girl
You hate being defined but love inside jokes.
Headstrong and bright
heart guarded by mind till I'm down the road.
Oh, you silly romantic
bigger than boxes and eyes full of stars.
You're so disconnected
a beautiful body and a head in a jar.

You taught me to own my love
but I cannot quite pin down that bug.
Neither of us lives all that we say
and lovely ideas spill out and vapor away.
I'll take what I can get, give what you'll accept...
I no longer fear there will be nothing left.

But oh, you obstinate girl
tougher than hide but soft as a sigh.
It's all I can do
to kiss at my joy as you're cycling by.
But oh, you child of the world
your legs aren't enough to carry you off
as far as your passions fly.
Calm and then frantic
worthy of more than you have allowed into your life!

You taught me to own my love
but I cannot quite pin down that bug.
Neither of us lives all that we say
and lovely ideas spill out and vapor away.
I'll take what I can get, give what you'll accept...
I no longer fear there will be nothing left.
