RUST

You want to tell me the truth,
I can tell you do,
But you’re frightened by the shine—
This new steely light in your life.
Maybe you’re thinking of how to make this easy.
Maybe you will wait here until tomorrow.
But, I’ll tell you, if you water this down,
Rest assured, rust is sure follow.

I don’t get angry.

No, I’ve told you so.
I’m the first polished stone you’ve seen
After years of watching rivers flow
Close to you, close to your front door,
And then by and by and moving on,
As are rivers known.

I will lie with if you don’t lie to me.
Tell me the truth, or watch me leave.
‘Cause I have a bed at home
I can make believe is just as warm.

I won’t get angry.
No, I’ve told you so.
But I’m on the backs of rivers,
Which you’ve watched flow,
And they’re carrying me to my front door,
To a bed I can make believe is just as warm.

Don’t wait here until tomorrow.
I’ll tell you, if you water this down,
Rest assured, rust is sure follow.

Take all of this with a grain of salt
I won’t put on you any fault.
I just wanna see you in that dress again.
I’ll make it red on my own if you give me your hand.

But you don’t have to wait here.
You don’t have to stall.
Please don’t lie around until tomorrow.
As I’ve told you, if you water this down,
Rest assured, rust is sure follow.
