Falcon

if you’re going to break my heart
then please just do it fast
if you’re going to crush my hopes
then hurry while they still last

i know you wish you could just run
but, honey, so does everyone

i’ve given up hope
i’ve given up on us
i’ve given up hope on you

if it’s going to be like that
then please just act your age
if you’re going to be like that
at least you do it offstage

i know you wish you could just run
the world won’t stop for anyone

i’ve given up hope
i’ve given up on us
i’ve given up hope on you

i know you wish you could just run
the world won’t stop for anyone

– Minta & The Brook Trout, “Falcon”, from Olympia, 2012.
