New Leaf

since you've been gone
i can do what i want to do
wear any old pair of shoes
knowing i won't run into you
and that knowing smile
that shake of a head
that saying more than what's said
i can hang out at my old haunts
i do have one or two
and not smile
at the doorbell
that brings you
i can wear long sleeves
and lip colour so bright
you'd have said where are my glasses
this shade hurts my eyes
i can make conversations with other people now
all i need is to learn how
so shoes and clothes and cosmetics
quite a full life i'd say
ah but where's all that intensity
i'd take that any damn day.
