far in the distance
this is the view from the other side
how did i let this p-ss me by?
took me for granted
planted th-rns in this garden of mine
what are the chances?
my hope has died
please have mercy
you’ve unnerved me
i don’t deserve this pain
so don’t break my heart,
i ain’t never done nothing to deserve this
i’m torn apart
you’ve had your fun, do you suppose i earned it?
do you not see how i’m begging on my knees?
don’t speak, don’t breathe,
you bring out the devil in me
thinking it over
those were days dark as ebony nights
the end of october felt like a lifetime
i had a suspicion
but didn’t want to believe you a liar
you had a mission to prove me right
you took my trust
ground it to dust
found out i knew better
and i don’t wanna feel the pain
and i don’t want another day
shackled to your ball and chain
you’re entirely to blame
and i’m so tired of explaining
the sensation of no novocain
i don’t have a prayer if
there is no charity in your heart
couldn’t you spare me?
i’ve done my part
