I saw your frame like a house barely built
I tried to tell you everything
Nothing would come out
Then I held your face beneath my own
Mosquitoes ate through our clothes
I wept and I wept I could not stop it
We slept like matches in our cardboard boxes
This is the way the world ends
I’ve said it over and over again

May was milked dry
All I could do was cry

I told you how it all could change
In the twenty-four hours of every single day
But that my sandpaper words
Could never ever wear away

May was milked dry
All I could do was cry

Jumped out of the car onto the highway
Picked you a wishing flower for your birthday
June bugs dancing with the middle of May
My organs a solar system on display

May was milked dry
All I could do was cry
