Word To The Wise: Keep It Up

// There’s very little I can offer you by way of recompense For the years of solid mateship and revelry we’ve spent But if I can sell you something from here across the sea It’s a promise that if you choose to love it will always set you free And I know it’s a bit…

A Letter To Wise: Good For Me

Dear Wise, I’ve never written you one of these letters, perhaps because I have always been so afraid of disappointing you with the lack of flowery language or flirty references.
