Ruined Songs: Say It Ain’t So

I revisit the Blue Album
because I loved it so much

More than once I’ve loved a song dearly
before it gained any real meaning to me

“Your drug is a heart breaker/
My love is a life taker”

Lyrics I loved

Until I listened once
for the first time in years

“My love is a life taker”

I’ve slept with at least two men
who are now dead. I thought

And started the song over.
