Music: Instrumental Version of Des'ree's Kissing You by Vincentr25200

I Keep Expecting You To
Jewel Kilcher

I keep expecting you 
to fade
to wake up one morning 
and not care
so I 
keep myself 
one carefully measured step away 
in anticipation 
of your love's decline

So when your cheek turns 
and your attention 
wanders 
elsewhere
my heart will not be left 
all akward 
hanging 
from an elastic thread
you forgot to pull off 
your old pair of socks* 

for it's in your nature to 
lose interest suddenly
we are both artists 
who suck the marrow out 
of each lovely bone

It just happens to be 
my lovely bones this time

How bare
