Salt and Sugar

My mother always warned me about boys like him The ones with pretty smiles and lungs that breathe roses Scripted words drew pictures of happily-ever-afters when he spoke That's what made him so dangerous, he was so easy to fall in love with And maybe the stories are right Maybe he'll leave devastation behind Maybe I'll...
