The shadows of the railing
By the room I played last night.
The whistle of a siren
And the blood of a lost fight.
And the closed sign on the food store
Broken window, crack of light
And the hurt that won't subside
won't u let me look inside?
And the 'do me' look from a burnt out *****
And the words that split my side.
Everything makes sense somehow
It's all that I expect
The tears I knew I'd always shed
The freight train singing in my head.
The rocks that turned a stranded heart
Into a sunken, flooded wreck.
All of this is somewhat new,
Baby I never thought this would come from u,
Ur soul was clean and pure and.....
Jesus Christ am I so lame
That it snuck right up on me?
I who's every move was honed and practised,
1 and 2 and ******* 63 !
Oh here's the rub, the wake up call.
I never knew that dame at all,
She let me think she needed love
And I gave up my past, and then my love.
And when her need of me was done
And some other shmoe became the one
The line was cut, connection frayed
Her single, final, veil displayed,
she naked, danced into the shade
So I could fall, into the sun
Not laughed at,
