CAKE WITH FROSTING


You prove everyday you get your way
That you came to me for my candy frosting
It clarifies the words I say
As I have you pay the price it's costing

You want your cake
There in another town
While this frosting aches
To swirl around

You ate your cake and you'll eat it again
Three years to bake the lady you call a friend
For the past year, you've added my frosting to it
And I've cried many a tear as I go through it

Cake and frosting are better as one
Made that way to compliment the other
Daily life and weekend fun
When frosting drips down the cake and smothers

The messy house, the cold you had
Hurtful words said, when I was hurting too
Neurotic louse, the devil-bad
I become without the cake of you

Your candy frosting
Your roommate cake
The price it's costing
Too much to take

Put one together
Or one will fall
It's time you better
For me to drink your milk at all

My cakes not cold
Hot from the oven
And I've been told
By the way you're loving

To eat it
Once in a while
It would rise up
And make you smile

Go from this town
Away to where you want to stay
There that cake's falling down
While this frosting's frozen, yet another day.
