A painful truth

There is a darkness towering over me

It falls over my eyes; making it impossible to see

There is no more us, there is no more we

It really happened, but how can it be?

If I close my eyes , it looks just the same

Differences; too wide the chasm, but no one's to blame

Shadows have fallen, oh, where is the light? The game

Is over, even before I knew to start; the excuses are lame

I look for answers in the dark of the night,

But these damn shadows stealing my sight

No one is wrong, and no one is right

Too big a hill to climb; the impossible fight

Regrets fill my heart, but also the sad truth

There is nothing I can change; there's nothing I can do

Nothing would have changed this thing for me and you

It's just a cold hard fact, our marriage is through
