The Ground

from Backup Plans by The Usual Things



The fall hits the air,
The leaves like you and I,
Keep falling down.

And you’ll waste every single word.
On beating me
Back to the ground.

There were dishes in the sink.
You needed a drink,
You smashed a glass upon the floor.

I looked at you,
You stared right back
Wondering what I made you do that for.

The ground.

Do you remember last September,
‘Fore you left me staring out the door
There are dishes in the sink,
I need a drink,
I’m only wanting more.

Do you remember last December
Before the world had left and gone and changed its mind
Before I left you staring back,
Thinking that you were mine.

The ground.
