The Burden Of Becky's Goneness

-

"And, oh, just to" lose you

Was havin' the worst "day of my life"

"And all that" I have

Is "pictures of" us

When all was O.K.

Well, now things are not

You chose to leave me

And I am left in the wreckage

Of what once was "you and me"

I'm leaving for home

In less than three weeks

And I thought I'd have some one

But not now, I see

Oh, what a heavy burden

My world on my back

That I have to carry

Without you in it

It will never be off my back

Without you in in

How early do I have to take my Lunesta

To sleep at night?

I know I'll soon crack

And cry and cry again

But I must stay strong

And away from 5350ing myself

Over this
