Over And "You Know" It

-

I wouldn't care to wonder why anymore

I blew it

Go on with life

This is my book to say just why

I am nothing in her life

I could beat up myself

__'til I'm dead

But where would that get me?

'Cause I don't care that she don't care

__about me

Fumbled away

The tossings and turnings

__under my blanket

At night time

Hesitates to put a meaning

In what is a dream

But who could give

__a damned care now

____about it?

Beside me is standing nobody

To hold my hand

In front of me stands no one

To look me in thee eye

I have pictured my death

For a long enough time

To know just why

Every woman says goodbye

I won't dream about it

__any longer

For with the sun waking up

And nobody being love

Everyday and night, I know why

I became a pissed off flower in a pot

With peddles rubbed off of me

As I am crushed

Dead I am now

Don't give a damn

She won't be my woman
