What Do You Think Of When You Don't Think Of Me?

from Ten Things Which Aren't Love by Pale Bird

lyrics

You’re used to taking the things I only look at
A charcoal drawing of my sanity
I think you’ve known the shape of sorrow in your mouth
What do you think of when you don’t think of me?

If you stopped smoking, you might live forever
Japanese woman with a cigarette in her teeth
Skinny slice of street sadness gone electric
What do you think of when you don’t think of me?

You’re no bigger
Than your sister sphere of sadness
That you push away from your chest
Elbows braced and fingers
Fingers laced
Your hands are big enough to hold it

You’ll never give yourself to being romantic
Because what is romance but suspension of disbelief?
Apart from all the world and everyone within it
What do you think of when you don’t think of me?
