The Pact

This year we will find the silver lining,
instead of giving our promises away.
We’re so much better at designing

desire, so why do we keep pining
for these faux lives of betray?
This year we will find the silver lining.

We can’t afford another year declining
harmony by silently growing astray.
We’re so much better at designing

grief instead of focusing on shining
our armour that languishes in decay.
This year we will find the silver lining,

Even if that means wining and dining
our love day and night, night and day.
We’re so much better at designing

a tease. It’s time we begin combining
these flaws, come what may.
This year we will find the silver lining;
We’re so much better at designing.
