It doesn't happen That Way

-

The death that is in my face

Makes me run and hide

The death that is in my face

Puts me in my place

Puts me down

Ruining

Ruining plans made.

And plans in the making

Burn before my eyes

Goin' around and around in circles

With the same problems

Everyday

Plain and simply, I must wait

But not gonna try to

Not gonna try

Just gonna push on forward

And force my entrance into happiness

One manic episode at a time.

I will be forced to wander

And be sent out for nothing

If you come along

And when I'm without you

I won't get along

So burry me with sadness

And peel me like fruit peels

There's not a diamond in the sand

Just walk out of riches

And a poor tampered mind

Strangle me when I fall to pieces

I think I'm gonna run
