how many blemishes do you have?

aside from this one on my chin
there is you

and my twenties
and that one stop sign ticket
because the rest have fallen off of my record

and the one on my chin is clearing up really
by tomorrow you won't even be able to see it




having imitation safety bits is
than facing the world buck naked,
spilling coffee
and baring an injured soul.
when i thought i knew who you were
i couldn't get enough of your ranting
and goofy grins

now that i know you are who you are
i don't know if i can keep you because
when you make me smile sorta
i feel betrayed
stars and buckets
buckets and stars
he is not here
he's overthar
'roun the corner
smokin' cigars
stars and buckets
buckets and stars
