I’ve hidden my heart in the #carrel, my dear
In the ink-spattered pages of yore
In yellows and greys, t’was the sum of my days
Hunting truths from the history lores
So I’ll give you my head, and my soul, and my love
But don’t ask me for anything more
For I’ve hidden my heart in the carrel, my dear
And forgotten the key to that door
