    I have this friend you see
    With chocolate eyes that joked
    Always laughing and forever kind to me
    Through my darkest days
    he was there
    To demand a smile
    And request my care
    He was my dog dare
    My brilliant blue diamond, so rare
    I fell too fast, I fell too hard
    I left without a fight but remain scarred
    I felt too scared and was never more aware
    Of the troubles that belied love
    Too late I shared, too late I bared my soul
    Now the truth is my love is leaking
    Leaking from a big black hole


    Thanks second lover for grabbing that bowl
