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
