Take What You Want

from The Good Nurse by Five Eight



only two can tell when you come over the hill. pulling into town it's been years since you've been around. had a lousy night of sleep. with your head stealing pieces of what was once said. and dreams that feel so dead. but don't let them make your bed. what is love and fear. like a dress you never wear. a place that can't be found. thoughts that still astound. from the corner of your eye. what makes apologies and turn the other cheek. ah just a fool like me. when you take what you want to. take what you want to. i'll give it to you. i'll give it to you. take what you want. the prodigal returns. father's pride burns. and brother turns his head looks down to spit on it. we never block things out. i remember every doubt. and what has shed the light. as this city comes into. take what you want to. get up we're leaving now. your father can walk home. his hand is on the phone. i feel it in my skin. the way you walk away. the movement of the day. the mystery and joy are clouded with your voice. so you take what you want to
