a whole acre of
timid glances

a whole mountain of
woeful chances

a whole island of
utter bad luck

a whole country of
'yeah, this fucking sucks'

a whole continent of
aching and of pain

a whole sky of
driving to you in the rain

a whole ocean of
waiting and waiting and waiting

a whole world of
dating by dictating not debating

a whole hell of
blaming the flaming sun

a whole solar system of
fighting for what's dead and done

a whole galaxy of
wishing it wasn't true

a whole universe of
me still needing you
