he told me I should live
too valuable ever to play by rules
the morning after opened my mouth
but no words were worthy of mentioning

a dream within another promise
caught between the folds of unmade covers
he fell in love too quickly and I too late
only days instead of years left to await us

kiss me underneath the greyish sky, lover-boy
before the day ends with me dying in vain as always
we shouldn't have fraternized just like they said
go figures, maybe it's better to keep hands in one's pockets

in the end, all that's gonna be left are our rusty dog tags
