Memories fill my head Of the love we once shared Am I wrong to want To go back to that place? A place where I'd Often look out my window To green grass And rolling hills Somehow signifying how Happy we were
I long for the days When packing a lunch Before you went to work Was a joy to me Giving you a kiss And sending you off Was fulfilling to my being Boring,mundane,and ordinary That was us And somehow it worked
But like the machine that This was sometimes The wrong buttons get pushed Then...
Before my eyes know rest They fill my pillow with stains Of salty worry I try to remember When days were brighter And my world was a little lighter But I can only recall the misery Sleepless nights are all I know Sadness mixed with melancholy And situations beyond my control
I still hear you whisper Promises of tomorrow Never leaving my side But only adding to my sorrow Where did those yesterdays go Still locked in my mind next To forever My heart can't fathom What reality is trying to Get my mind to see...
Verse 1 I know about the other woman I know she's the one who's calling Late at night when you slip out I know what it's all about Even though I try to make it right She's the one you're seeing tonight But before you leave I gotta know
Chorus: Can we pretend that I'm the only one Let's make it happen Before the feeling is gone Can we pretend that She don't exist And I'm the woman You're in love with Baby if it's not Asking too much Can we pretend?
I remember that day Of Aunt Bea's funeral Plenty of people wearing Blacks and greys So were we but Somehow we caught each Other's eyes Damn we're you as Fine as ever
For a moment in time It was just us Staring at one another intensely I admired the way Your dreads flowed Down your shoulders And cascaded over your back Strong,muscular arms Were visible through The jacket of your suit
Damn I thought Who was this hunk of sexy? I watched as you slowly turned Almost hating to break our stare...
Idly I stand by, watching you walk away You have another waiting for you. Someone who loves you too She'd never understand What you mean to me. How your love completes me.
But know that as you go A part of me will go with you, Securing the bond that was built On a solid foundation. My heart smiles knowingly That you are flowing through me. The essence of your love Abides deeper than the eye can see.
Physical? Oh no... Nothing can be further from the truth. Spiritual,emotional, growing From a deep root.
Take my hand he said Come with me to your destiny Not knowing and unsure I took his hand and we walked. We walked through fields of yellow And green,where birds lived Small creatures crept about unseen. Loving this place,I wanted to stay It was so easy and free Surely this is where I longed to be It had to be my destiny.
But as quickly as the sun glowed We embarked on a world so cold The stench of death choked me I struggled to find light He gripped harder as he spoke to me We're almost there he said I tried to fathom...
It's like walking through hell Wondering if you'll ever wake up If you'll break the spell. Voices taunting me,saying this And saying that. Telling me I'll never win So it's best you exit And bring it to an end... To a close...take a handful Of pills I suppose.
You see I never had the guts To put a gun to my head So I ingest enough downers To leave two people dead. All the while that one little voice Keeps telling me I have a choice And that I won't expire Refusing to face the music I now face the fire.
I'd tell you all that i know But i don't think you're ready No you're not prepared to hear That change is coming,that doom is near
You say you don't wanna live a lie That the truth will set u free But you can't handle the truth! So it will remain a mystery
It's a bitter pill to swallow Really hard to take When you find out the life You live really is fake... An illusion,a fantasy Nothing like the crap you've been fed The "American Dream", It's all in your head
