I’m driving you away so perfectly
And I don’t even own a car

But I bet between the two of us
We could get pretty far

Maybe you’ll find yourself in my father’s paintings,
Maybe if you find me instead, your plaything,

I guess I can only hope and pray
You’ll find it in your heart someday, to tell me

Where did you go, Oleander?
The little innocent-
The girl who did everything
Happy just to be out walking
Now you’re bitter, now you’re old
Come back, come here, don’t fold.

Your just like origami, dear
You crumple finely every year

From your dainty fingertips
Chewing ice tween miserable lips,

Just to feel the cold somewhere
That isn’t your chest.
I’ve tried and done my best

But it wasn’t good enough to bring you home
Now I’m left with me, and that’s all alone.
