It feels like I’ve been chewing on gravel

It sounded true when I said it

But I feel it weighing against me

And I know I didn’t mean it

When I told you my love was free

That I gave it away, cheap

That wasn’t quite true

I don’t love for free

In fact I hardly give it at all

I care so deeply, though

And so much that that’s free

And that’s really what I meant-

I care for cheap, for free

But I don’t give love that way

Just when I told you you’d have my love

I didn’t want you to know

How like gold I guard it

How priceless and sealed away

It really is

And so my mouth feels dirty

Because you don’t deserve any more lies
