Sweety Pie

There were two nursery friends one summer, playing outside.

They’re busy getting each other lost in any world that they liked. Two mothers broke up the spell when it was time to go home. You lost his face over time, but never his beautiful way.

You don’t remember his name, but always the one that he gave. That day, all day, he called you Sweety Pie. It doesn’t feel like your name now, there’s others all over town. No Mothers broke up the game now, but they came crying why. Why? So tell them why.

See not all that many years had passed when it all re-aligned. The spark was lit in a downtown bar, and it blew up outside. No bellend was gonna tell you it was time to go home. But who’d have thought you could get so caught up in the night and the noise? You wouldn’t carry your own blade, but for the love of your boys. Tough guys, but inside you call them Sweety Pie. It doesn’t feel like your name now, there’s others all over town. No Mothers broke up the game now, but they came crying why, Why? So tell them why It’s too late for backing out now. He had to sit himself down, and they say he died too soon to catch the pretty blue lights. Only in terrified eyes did you see that same dear child. I guess it’s fitting you loved him truly after your stuck him, Shakespeare style. It’s too late for backing out now. Sweety Pie you better bounce, you are a killer. On the run from all the pretty blue lights. It doesn’t feel like your name now, there’s others all over town. Nobody broke up the game now, but they came crying why, Why? So tell them why.
