Some days can be high and others can seem low
Inevitably the muse for a fine rondeau
Today is about someone you know
Or a person I used to know
Stuck between clinging to or letting go
Rattled by the emotional presence you bestow
In my head, I can't find the right tempo
Promises they say; are just words
With the writings on the wall; we were two blackbirds
Venom from the fangs of a viper; allegations too absurd
But you believed them and never took my word
Forgetting the good times; you ate all of the shit they stirred
Now that all is gone, I'll save my tears in a bottle
I'll send you a little something as a reminder
To show that my sorrow does linger
And the pain in my heart still simmer
As our future together grow dimmer
And as a token of this unrequited love
I'll send you my tears in a bottle
