once you kissed a roman nose,
once you drew in dirty prose,
once you fucked a red, red rose

how shall I love thee when you have gone?

a girl in solemn photograph,
a girl who made you moan and laugh
a girl who blamed herself for half

pretend you never laid me down
pretend you never kinged my crown
pretend you never left this town

a smile that launched a thousand smiles
a mile became a hundred miles
a pile of shit turned into piles
