she comes at a cost…

how long didya think it was gonna take her ‘fore she caught onto your act…tryin’ to be somethin’ you’re not…some kinda magician pullin’ rabbits outta your hat…you can only play that trick for so long…’ventually they’ll see right through ya’…can’t fool ’em…may think ya’ can but you’d be wrong…

ya’ write her these letters everyday…drippin’ with honey…tellin’ her that one day you two will meet and walk hand in hand into the sunset…nothin’ could be further from the truth…

want truth…ya’ live like some animal in a rented cage…sure…ya’ gotta t.v. and a coffee pot…but not much else…what…some books for readin’ at one o’clock in the mornin’ when sleep eludes ya…does she know that ya’ live off a sack of potatoes for God’s sakes…don’t even think you can afford to put butter on ’em…

here’s what she wants…a man without any baggage…without any problems…a simple man to get her through life… someone she can lean on…that’s what she wants…

and Eddie…you can’t give that to her…you’re incapable of changin’…you’ve created this mess in your life of livin’ from month to month…day to day…somehow survivin’ off a what…ya’ must be real scared to tell her the truth…i know i’d be…

we live in this illusion…some kinda dream…thinkin’ it’ll all come through one day in flyin’ colors…everything we always wished for…all we ever wanted…but that’s not reality Eddie…reality is what you step into everyday…it’s the shit on the bottom of your shoes Eddie…it’s slippin on a pile of wet leaves left out through the winter time…nobody bothers to clean ’em up…they just lay there waitin to make somebody fall…

you’ve fallen boy…ain’t much ya’ can do ’bout it…just accept the truth…you can’t afford to have her…she comes at a cost…they all do Eddie…one way or another…one way or another…
