“Coulomb’s Law” by Mandi Labuschagne


Mandi Labuschagne - 2011-11-11

 

 

Coulomb’s Law

I didn't know of love
I didn't know of a thing
I've never known of prophets
Or ever believed in unnatural feelings

Why do I care about people
Who go down under my wicked ways

You think our bond will be broken
Simply because there’s a thread
Or think that your bruises are better
Just because they’ve never bled

The power of love
A lover of power
The power of a lover
A note that is played

Equally transient and beautiful
Some just better behaved

You would think words proclaim what is written
Just because they are read
Or think that they’re heard when they're spoken
Simply because they are said

But none of this is real
Not the words that I speak
Or the way that you feel

You would think words proclaim what is written
Just because they are read
Or think that they’re heard when they're spoken
Simply because they are said
