William Matthew Prior

from by Swamp Baby



Hey William Mathew Prior
guess what? I’m a painter for hire too
it’s ok
there’s worse things you could be

take it from me

I’ve tried everything

It ain’t what you do

It’s who you do it for
That’s what you are

It ain’t the easiest thing in the world
To paint two eyes and a mouth hole
Lost upon a common face
It’s ok
We won’t look away

we won’t look away
we won’t look away
till you know our faces
Till you can paint every one
From memory

It’s ok
Don’t look away…

don’t look away
don’t look away
can you see our ghosts?
would you paint our ghosts?
and William, when you’re a ghost
yeah, William, when you’re a ghost
you’ll be something to see
