A Knife Wound in Your Name
Hello, Jen, it's been a while, and
(Although I did not call today)
I thought I would just call to say
that I think a lot
Yeah, I'm thinking every day
And Jen, inevitably
My thoughts return to you
Your hair, your eyes, the way your lips form a pretty little 'O' when you ask me if I know
and the things, the things
the things we both went through
And Jen there are a thousand things that I want right now to say to you
which is nine hundred and ninety-nine more than I have courage for
So instead I'll say just one, no more
even though all the lovesick lines the world ever uttered
or the awkward goodbyes later muttered
wouldn't approach doing justice to the way I felt when I stopped frozen at your door
dropped this letter,
and turned away to run a second time.
Every day I scream in my head that one thing I never said
that little line I never told you, the very thing that erstwhile lovers always do.
No, I never said it, and I never will
But I've always felt it and, if thoughts could kill
then every thought I've had since then would be a knife wound in your name
All the world would be bleeding out and my love would be to blame
It's the only way I know,
In this cold, dark world
to feel for you.

Killing for Love.
That's the name of a very beautiful song by José González. I was listening to José when I wrote this, but I wasn't listening to that song. Anyways, even if the names are similar, the lyrics are about entirely different things.
Deadweight on Velveteen, by José González.
yeah. I'd recommend you give the guy a listen. Just 'cuz.
