about

A love song. Mailbox-style.

lyrics

Bring me my sword and my pen
Bring me a fox and a hen
and everything in between
and some other things you’ve never seen

Give me the sticks and the stones
Give me your skin and your bones
and everything else inside
and all of the things you thought you could hide

And I’ll make you love
out of nothing at all

Give me the win or the place
Give me time and space
and everything you can find
and all of the things you left behind

And I’ll make you love
out of nothing at all

Show me the meaningless and absurd
Tell me the worst joke you’ve ever heard
I’ll buy you a rose by any other name
I’ll show you it’s all just one and the same

Take all the captains and whales
Take all the snips and the snails
and everything I’ve been taught
and all of the things I’m sure I forgot

And I’ll make you love...

Show me the meaningless and absurd
Tell me the worst joke you’ve ever heard
There’s just no winning or losing this game
I’ll show you it’s all just one and the same
