about

wrote this tune for the february album writing month (fawm.org) challenge.

lyrics

They were days of cigarettes and wine
Of partying and staying out all night
Not coming home till the break of dawn
Or sleeping in a stranger's arms
Of lying and never coming clean
Believing the only truth was me
Of staying in the shadows
When I should've been dancing in the stars

Now it's too late to make amends
For when I had more time than sense
You can't forgive and grant me another try
I've grown a lot, I'm wiser and
I changed into a different man
Who's heart will heal with each new song he writes
And break a bit, every day

I remember all the times I hurt -you
May say I'll get my just desserts - you
May keep me awake at night
You may haunt my dreams
But I draw the line I won't take the blame
For the note you wrote and the pills you ate
And the bottle that I left
...supposedly...

Now what is left but to second guess
It seems we had more time than sense
I can't go back and grant you another try
I've grown a lot, I'm wiser and
I turned into a better man
Who's heart will heal with each new song he writes
And break some more, every day
Until he dies
