I Give Up Trying To Be There For You


I shut off my brain

Shut off my heart

And cut off ev'ry one

Nothing here

__but shame

____and fear

______tearing me apart

Guts and glory

Pieces of loving gone stale

No happy story

The joke has gotten old

And when I fell to pieces


____I found out ev'rything

If you don't love me by now

__you never will

Tired of drinking too much coffee

__and taking a P.R.N. for them

In the fields of lost love

Dreading whatever outcome

You are gone

And you are gone

And as gone as gone can be

My heart was broken

The voices

__all jokin'

That you would be my anything

I laugh not

No, never, now

For, when I see your face

I know my feelings

__are just a waste

You gotta be kidding me

Thinking I won't mind

You not being mine

If I were to hang my head though

I'd only be seeing your knees

Thru your jean holes

Every morning I wake up

Knowing I'm not your anything

I could not be your king

'Cause you cannot be my queen

Too many tricks

__are up your sleeve

All you do is leave me alone

I miss when you were bothering me

When you used to interrupt my day

Now it's not so romantic

This silence you've been giving

I melt away

__and rot in my core

You won't hear from me anymore
