A Failure's Wake

May 23, 2016

I lie and wait

In cotton tombs

I stage a failure's wake

And your words exhumed

My empty chest

Where hope sat blind to fate

 

 

(CHORUS)

What was nothing new to me

Was something cruel to you

A bottom line was skewed

And now there's nothing I can do...

Erase my heart

This never was for you 

Replace the start

And leave the right to choose

 

 

It's getting late

My eyes stay glued

On tiles miles away

The fan sifts through

A thousand why's

I'll never tie to sense

 

 

(Chorus)

Something cruel to you

Was nothing new to me

A bottom line was skewed

And now there's nothing I can do...

Erase my heart

This never was for you

Replace the start

And leave the right to choose

 

 

(Bridge)

Cause while I writhe and wait

And hope and pray that my phone rings

And you will say, "I'm coming back to die with you." With you.

I know that you're awake and pained

And hoping you can walk away

So you can finally have the life you want for two. For two

 

 

(Breakdown)

Something new to you

Was nothing cruel to me

A bottom line was skewed

And now there's nothing I can do...

But erase this heart

This never was for you 

Erase this heart

This never was for you

 

Erase my heart

This never was for you X2

 

Erase my heart X2
