Needless to say I let you down as you've come to expect I can admit when I was around I was distracted Change is the enemy of love and one's heart is the victim Well, I'm caught in a bind Pressed between each binge I've found that sleep is only my friend when it's convenient Despite every restless night I spent in my own head I love you still Please if you see the kids will you tell them how much I have missed them All he ever made working at that job was minimum wage and a notable mistake which he could not take back He hid himself away Only she knew where he stayed Said he never meant to hurt her Feeling worthless with no sense of purpose he just caved in How he passed the time... How he made it through each day... Spewing thoughts, pausing mid-sentence, changing ribbons, cherishing a brief moment of silence He was taught the greatest lesson He was left to his own devices and after counting every blessing rejected fate as the conclusion
Out Of View 03:18
The love I have must have purpose Wouldn't it be wonderful... ...to live each day knowing you have honest devotion The celebration was waiting for you and with no hesitation you stepped out of view To call it suicide would be to tell a half-truth I think it's safe for us to say Yes, we can call a spade a spade The celebration was waiting for you and with no hesitation you stepped out of view
Ask me again "Do I want to dance?" and I will promise not to spoil your view again Tell me why am I crying again? Thinking of when I left you waiting for a fleeting thought of getting used to it Is that why I'm crying again? A rush of panic strikes within I have to tell myself that this feeling always seems to pass I am surrounded by doubt We knew from the start we'd both skip town I would call you Jenny and you would call me a wreck When I asked if you could believe me know You were busy fiddling with the radio dial I am beside me now Alone for the ride somehow
No one else can feel your pain when she's no longer there Lost and lonely, wandering A hopeless means to no end Going through the motions you don't have enough strength for Pining for the drowning death of sorrow evermore Some people's love is deeper Some hearts never heal
Aftermath 02:24
The aftermath of love is like that of war Some people will survive Others will die Some will rejoice and others will mourn There are those who are wounded Innocent prisoners clutching their lives I am facing the chair Will you be there when they pull the switch? Goodnight, Goodnight I love you, I love you I'll see you tomorrow Hopefully, hopefully
