Frozen Beauty
Jandek

I thought I told you
Not to be so nice
I thought I'd hold you
Just once or twice
But you stayed around
All this time
If I didn't go
You'd probably have changed
But because I'm gone
I still see you the same
It's like you're frozen
Time doesn't change you
You're still around
And you're the same
Sometimes I see you
You're in a dream
Just like you were
A long time ago
I'll take what you give me
This memory
I don't need nothing else
I made you this way
I took your life
Put it in a box
I pray at your gravestone
Remembering when
You walked my path
You slept in my bed
It's a long, long time
I've got a pain in my head
But you gave me an earthquake
Everything is rearranged
I take this new place
As the world is now
It's just I remember
Your frozen image
You wild, wild thing
You gave me a jungle
To cut my way through
The beasts and the dangers
Made me what I am
So walk with me, frozen beauty
As I reclaim my life
I'm sure that you're melting
Some other place I don't know
