Unanswered Poems Lyrics

Don’t send me more

Of your tragic poems

My dear

Covered in blood

Of your monthly flood

Of tears

Don’t send me more

Of your angry poems

My dear

Carved with the knife

Of your molten spite

And fears

I’m just a peddler

With a cart

Bringing discount words

To hearts

Broken hearts across the land

Woman left without her man

Broken hearts throughout the world

Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear

For me to read, for me to bear

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear

For me to get from here to there

Don’t send me more

Of your bitter poems

My sweet

Forged in the fire

Of your endless ire

And grief

Don’t send me more

Of your hopeless poems

My sweet

Ripped from the womb

Of the lonely room

You keep

I’m just a peddler

With a cart

Bringing discount words

To hearts

Broken hearts across the land

Woman left without her man

Broken hearts throughout the world

Anguished boy and crying girl

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear

For me to read, for me to bear

Your poetry’s too heavy, dear

For me to get from here to there

(You see that shadow on the road

Trudging ‘neath its heavy load

A heart weighed down by sands of time

And your poems only make him cry

And he won’t add them to the pile

So he can walk another mile)

(And he won’t add them

To the pile

So he can walk

Another mile)

Too heavy, dear

Too heavy, dear

For me to read

For me to bear

(They make him sad

Make him cry

Beat him down

Deep inside)

Too heavy, dear

Too heavy, dear

For me to read

For me to bear

They make me sad

Make me cry

Feel as though

I want to die

(And he won’t add them

To the pile

So he can walk

Another mile)

Too heavy, dear

Too heavy, dear

For me to read

For me to bear

(A heart weighed down

By sands of time

And your poems

Only make him cry)

Too heavy, dear

Too heavy, dear

For me to read

For me to bear
