Lyla for Lack of a Better Lover

from .​.​.​in Green by Oui Ennui



Written after an argument with my ex-wife. Lyla was just a concept, but then again so is marriage?


You asked me what I'd do
If you left
Well I'd be blue
And call up Lyla for the Lack of a Better Lover

A penny for your thoughts
I overpaid
You've overstayed
Your welcome too
Somebody ought to thank your mother
Or shove her apparently

I love the punishment
And trust you like the government
You claiming if I don't vote
Well then I can't complain
I feel another way

And just to clarify
You and me are together why?
You hate everything I do
And most of what I say
But you won't go away

I think I've had my fill
I'm underwhelmed
It's overkill
You said it was a bitter pill
It sure fits the bill
Well I regurgitate
