1. Mint Condition


Mint Condition
By Caroline Spence

My favorite things are tired and worn
A dog-eared book with the cover torn,
But when I see you it’s like the very first day
There are some things you don’t want to fade

Still in mint condition, mint condition
Like when we were two kids just hopin’ and wishin’
That this life that we see ain’t no apparition
So we keep our love in mint condition

You can hide love away in a trunk or a box
You can throw out the keys once you lock all the locks
But some things will last and some things they won’t
But nothing about you ever gets old

Our bodies, they age, wrinkle, and tire
The feeling of comfort overtakes desire
I may have to learn to live here alone
But I’ll love you through ash or through stone
