Diminish with each word found
And the bird of all hope flies south
Every time I move this mouth

And this old city life
Feels like paradise

And after all hope is gone

Diminishes as day comes ‘round

And this old city life
Feels like paradise
Sometimes,
Sometimes.
And these old paragraphs
Started out just for laughs
I didn’t mean to see you cry
Did I?

But in my haste I swore I atsted a thing or two.
