​A Name Like Poison

This song is by Rainer Maria.

Her name's like poison to my ears,
So why'd you leave her pictures out?
And I know I'm back where I should have left,
But I seem to be good at cultivating doubt.

And I can't remember when I took on this original debt.
And it may be self-absorption,
But her name's like poison to my ears,
And no one really owns this town.
You can avoid a certain street,
But unexpectedly it comes as a reminder
Of the picture of her hand reaching.

I should remember that now we're at a critical depth.
And somewhere, there's another picture of me and the heartache that some other girl resents.

Somewhere, somewhere,
Is the heartache that some other girl resents.
Somewhere, somewhere.

I like my imagination,
And I'm really good at singing about the past.
Like the sailor and the sirens,
I could go overboard.
So babe, you gotta tie me to the mast.

Somewhere, somewhere--
Babe, you gotta tie me to the mast.
Somewhere, somewhere--
Babe, you gotta tie me.

Her name's like poison to my ears,
So why'd you leave her pictures out?
