I went to the mall
I went to go shopping
I went to buy some clothes that I could wear to work

The sign out front
Said the sale’s inside
So I went on in to see what I could find

Casual shirts
For $200
The kind you wear untucked when you’re all alone
Casual shirts
That need to be ironed
The kind you wear untucked when you can’t leave your home

You said we should leave
Head out for the open
We might find what we need somewhere else instead

So we both held hands
And made our way for the door
But the tide was strong and kept us stuck to the floor

You smiled at me
You seemed kind of crazy
You said you had plan to get us out of here

So we counted to three
And I followed your motions
And somehow we made it right past the door


from Starmakers, released March 5, 2016
