Kim Deal, A Mason

July 12, 2018

Reminded how

I wished so hard for so long,

that I'd been born Kim Deal

I wished so hard for so long,

ever longing just to tell it how it feels

Tongue in gutter, yeah 

You better shudder, boy 


Wished so hard for so long

I'd been tougher

Not such a foolish lover

Can never see or hear it coming

In my striped knee socks

Just like Kim, with my middle fingers up

Laugh at everything

Yeah, "Smoke em if you got em"

I heard her say


I wished so hard for so long 

That wishing hard would make me braver

But the time, instead 

just made the resolution waver 

Skip to the end again

Now it just grows the fear

Thin with wear - I hate it here

The scenery that's always changing 

While the waves seen from the shor...
