lyrics

Charlie pours another glass.
Is it our third or our forth?
It numbs the pain and keeps the conversation on its course.

Charlie asks me do I think
From time to time of our love.
I mutter “Yes, dear” and call on every last saint above.

I'm looking for a man
About 5'9"
About my size
With a generous heart.

I'm looking for a man
Around 135
Waist size 30
Who's generous with his time.

I go looking through the closets
And under shelves of soft porn and bulk ammunition
I find pictures of us creased and torn.

And those gifts my mother gave us
And the poems I write, you've hid from the guests.
I find them tied and placed beneath the light.

I would surely settle
For some boring but nice guy
With manners and insurance
Or something resembling a plan.

I would surely settle down
In a suburb of Cleveland
If it meant that I could be myself
For just part of the day.

I'm looking for a man
Around 135
But I'm not picky
If he’s generous with his time.
