Palm Reader by Benjamin Blake

Fretful since the day we met
Strung up with strands of blonde hair
Just hanging around

Palm reader, you lied
When you said that the One would come along
Palm reader, you lied
You were staring right at my love life

Maybe we should just fake our own deaths
It’s much too cold waiting in the wings
