Aftermath

AFTERMATH

Words & Music:

I run
Between the tall pines and the road
The lights they blind me
Cannot keep the pictures
I cannot keep them from my mind
Like a photograph
You are locked in place and time
I never thought to leave you there

You told me
You told me
But I could not think so very bad of him
I trusted where no trust should lie
I made the greatest mistake of my life
Your blood’s cold as ice

You told me
[So I stayed to watch you]
You told me
I had to run and leave you lying there
[take the fall for me]
Lying all alone
[No love can save us all]

You are gone from me
You are gone

I run
Between the tall pines and the road
The cars
So many cars
And all the faces
They have no meaning
They have no expression for me
Cannot keep you from my mind
And high above you’re looking down on me
I cannot keep you from my mind
[take the fall for me]
And you are gone from me
Requiem for a lie
