So Long Ago Cast

I can forgive
It makes me a better man
I can learn to love again
I swear that I can
I can learn to forget you
Or at least I think I can

The wound ran deep
And maybe it had to
To make me realize
I could live without you
If you knew the tears I cried
What would your heart do

It’s too late for that
I know you don’t regret
The blade that cut through me
I will never forget
A scar that I’ll bear forever
Vulnerability never again let

Look into the future
Never let in from the past
Emotions that pass too slowly
Never meant to last
A heart forever burdened
By a stone so long ago cast

Like It Or Not

I lose my breath whenever I think of holding you
I keep my distance
I stay away
Far in the distance
Far away from you
Far away from me
Far away from what anyone can see
Far away from you and me

I’m graced by visions whenever I’m around you
Stay away from me
Just stay away
I won’t ever look back
Far away to you
Far away from me
Far away from whatever could be
Far away from you and me

I wish it could be different
I wish we could live the fairy tale
But fairy tales only end in heartache or tragedy
In the real world
And we both live in the real world
I never liked living in the real world
But it’s the world we both live in
Like it or not

It’s the world we both live in
Like it or not

What I Can’t Keep

Thinking too much
Delving too deep
Wanting to touch
Needing to sleep

Tonight the cactus is my dearest friend
Not much good for giving advice
But good for easing the turmoil inside
Put the needle in the groove and let it jam
In my heart the story will end
A sordid story of men and mice
Everything to lose and nothing to hide
Nothing to gain by you knowing who I am

Drinking too much
Diving too deep
So out of touch
Don’t say a peep

Tomorrow my head is sure to pound
Sometimes that’s the price to be paid
For yesterday’s long-buried memories
The ones that are destined to bury you alive
Don’t say a word or try to make a sound
Even the fearless sometimes feel afraid
Confronting what the conscience sees
Knowing it can’t attain what the heart strives

Weeping too much
Sinking too deep
Wanting to touch
What I can’t keep

Flawed

Don’t for a minute think it would’ve been better
I’m flawed just as much as the rest of the world
I don’t want you to look into my eyes
I don’t want you to hear my bittersweet sighs
I don’t want you to think I’m anything more
Than someone who used to love you
And I can’t love you anymore

Don’t for a second wonder what it would be like
In a world where different decisions were made
I don’t want you to see behind the mask
I don’t want to hear the questions you would ask
I don’t want you to be able to see my flaws
And there are so many for you to see
But I want you to love me because

I dont know how to love you anymore
Not like I loved you before
I dont know how to love you anymore
But I still want you to love me
Just like you loved me before

Because I’m flawed
Just as much as the rest of the world

Waiting Anyway

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
Waiting anyway

In the dead of the night
I’m all alone with nothing but my thoughts
There’s no meaning to what’s left over
It’s gone forever and I know it
It’s gone forever
Move on
Easier said than done
I made my bed and now I lie in it
Find a tissue and cry in it
Then get over it
And move on
Easier said than done
When I’m waiting patiently
For the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
I’ll wait anyway

If there’s the slightest shred of hope
The smallest inkling of possibility
I have to wait and see
It could happen eventually
Throw a drowning man a rope

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Even though I know there’s no possibility
I still need to believe there’s a chance

Just the slightest chance

The Yesterday I Threw Away

I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away
I remember the friendship that grew into so much more
I remember how I felt when you opened the door
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember my deceit
I remember her emotional frailty
I remember your strength
I remember knowing you would carry on and survive
I remember thinking she would not
I remember the decision that had to be made
The yesterday I threw away
I remember turning left instead of right
I remember making love with you that night
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember the next morning
I remember saying goodbye to you
I remember how I felt when I closed the door
I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away

I’m Sorry I Kissed You

I’m sorry that I kissed you
That night I closed my eyes to the world around me
The world that so often left me scared and confused
A world I wasn’t ready to abandon
Even if it meant the comfort of being with you
I’m sorry I kissed you
I’m sorry I let you have the slightest glimpse
A chance romance that was never meant to last
Where even regrets can shed no tears
Of the memories of being with you
I’m sorry that I kissed you
