Cagily Profound

David Berman

I’m gonna love you for a hundred years
Through suffering and celebration, dear
‘Cause only you can make my lies come true
You can make lies real
And you can make me feel
Like drinking wine in the shade all afternoon

You keep finding and reminding me
That you only can be kind to me
When you got with me and started dreaming my dreams
But, darling, there’s a gun in the garland
And you need to know
That the dream is not all dream
