“Your Arms Around Me” by Jens Lekman

From your mouth speaks your lovely voice
The softest words ever spoken: “What’s broken can always be fixed. What’s fixed will always be broken.”

It was the hottest day in August
We were heading for the sea
For a second my mind started drifting

It was the hottest day in August
We were heading for the sea
For a second my mind started drifting

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around

Blood spraying on the kitchen sink
“What’s this” I have time to think
I see the tip of my index finger
My mind is slowly creating a link

From your mouth speaks your lovely voice
The softest words ever spoken

You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around me
You put your arms around

I must have passed out on the porch
Dreamt I was carried in a kangaroo’s pouch
When I wake up, I’m in the waiting room
On a dirty hospital couch

My hand is wrapped in toilet paper
And my body is wrapped in debris
You’re sitting next to me reading the paper
I put your arm around me

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
