it was the way you touched my skin...
mandolyn

i used to be cold
 1
before summer dropped you off
 2
and left you
 3
on the edge of my bed–
 4
 
 
your eyes were afraid of mine
 5
like i was made of glass;
 6
you tried to handle me with care
 7
until i told you
 8
i was dead
 9
 
 
because a thousand tears
 10
could not prove
 11
that i've been broken
 12
and you just wanted me
 13
for the night
 14
 
 
you were right–
 15
 
 
i'd flip you
 16
across the moon
 17
if i could
 18
then watch you fall
 19
 
 
while my heart
 20
remains a canyon
 21
you fly over
 22
when she's gone
 23
