What A Terrible Loss


O.K., so I guess I lost another one

Pushed away

I got too close

Kept asking me for "space"

It's all over

It's gone to waste

Oh fucking well

She's just another dame

She doesn't like me that way

I can tell already

Today became the day

That I wish I stayed away

But I didn't

And that's O.K.

Because I tried

Just failed

Maybe I made too much of an effort

And got in her way

But "the silence was deafening"

That's all I can say

Now, what's done is done

There's no starting over

I've just been blown over

Like a leaf, and turned over

I rustle away in the wind

I just can't win
