Body of Mine

release date: April 23, 2021
on: Soft
as: Yellow Ostrich


i get up early
bruise on my thigh
internet tells me
i’m lucky to be alive
doctor’s office
was the only one there
i could read any magazine i wanted
but all i did was stare

at the deep shade of green
with little hints of blue
i don’t know what this body of mine is coming to

i get up early
to catch the 5
go downtown to the library
i’m anxious to survive
i look up answers
then i read the news
get so distracted by the world
that i forget the bruise

with its deep shade of blue
and little hints of green
i don’t know what this body of ours is gonna mean
i’m on my side now
and i’m giving up
i don’t know when this body of mine has had enough



oh i want to feel alright
it seems this will take some time
can you fix it with just a line
oh i would like you to drive
