Siren Call

If the sun rose in the west

and set in the east,

Would I still light up your world?

If penguins marched in the north

and elves made toys in the south,

Would I still be your north star?

If I move a world away,

Will yours still turn for me?

I want you to dream of me

with eyes wide open,

I want you to give me

all I couldn’t give you.

Because I’m your siren, love,

Not your faithless wife,

And I don’t get the happy ending,

Just the sordid middle.

But I won’t go down without a fight.
