lyrics

Jack O' Lantern (c) 2014 written, produced, performed by @Charles_Duke

I'll put back my heart in my chest
Bandage up the hurt in my breast
Haiku out a love remedy, a potion so sweet
Like you and me.

I'll write down the fantasies we,
Shared and when the horror gets deep
I'll remember dates and the time, and the way you said goodbye
And stared at me.

I will carve your name in the sun
So every time you look to the sky you see what you've done to me.
Rip your name from the skin of the sun
So every time you look to the sky
You see what you've done to me.

I will kiss my black cats goodbye
Bottle up my screams and my cries
Frog tears and pig ears and things you couldn't ever dream of,
Like fears.

I will fuel my broom for the ride.
When the moon comes out, I'll fly by her side.
You'll wake up in the morning and see what you've done to me.
As if you've swallowed a flame you will blaze.

(chorus)

Jack o' Lanterns are cruel,
Jack o' Lanterns are fools who take for granted the rules of the heart.
Jack o Lanterns are jerks,
So Jack o' Lanterns must hurt for their sins like the flesh of a pumpkin.

I will carve your name in the sun
So every time you look to the sky you see what you've done to me.
Rip your name from the skin of the sun
So every time you look to the sky you see what you've done to me.
