I WATCH YOU SLEEP ALL ALONE

THEN I START TO COUNT THE BREATHS

THROUGH THE GLASS OUTSIDE YOUR HOME

UNTILL I HAVE NO ENERGY LEFT

 

THEN I LEAVE YOU TO GET SOME REST

BUT ILL SEE YOU TOMARROW DO NOT FRET

ILL BE THERE ALL THE TIME

UNTILL I MANAGE TO MAKE YOU MINE

 

IM STANDING THERE BEHIND THE GIANT OAK

IN THE PARK ACROSS THE STREET

IVE TOLD YOU HOW I LOVE YOU IN THE UNSENT NOTE

YOU DONT UNDERSTAND IM JUST TRYING TO BE SWEET

 

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO MAKE YOU SEE

THAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE WITH ME

IF I CANT HAVE YOU NEITHER CAN HE

I REFUSE TO BE THE ONLY ONE CRYING IN THE STREET

 

ILL KILL YOU, ILL KILL HIM, AND ILL KILL MY SELF

THATS HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME

SO IM PULLING THE GUN OUT FROM THE SHELF

AND ILL MAKE THE BLOOD RUN IN THE STREETS

 

SO TONIGHT ILL FOLLOW YOU BOTH BACK TO HIS PLACE

YOU MAY NOT KNOW MY NAME BUT YOU KNOW MY FACE

AND THESE EYES WILL BE THE LAST THING YOU SEE

AS YOUR LYING THERE DYING NEXT TO  ME

 

IM COUNTING YOUR BREATHS UNTILL THEY STOP

YOU THINK IM A BAD GUY BUT REALLY IM NOT

I SAVED YOU FROM MAKING A BIG MISTAKE

BY BEING WITH A GUY WHOS LOVE IS FAKE

 

PEOPLE GATHER ROUND AND STOP TO SEE

THESE THREE PEOPLE DYING IN THE STREET

I LAID MYSELF RIGHT NEXT TO YOU

WHICH WILL ONLY LEAD PEOPLE TO ASSUME

 

THAT ME AND YOU  WERE QUITE  THE PAIR

BUT LITTLE DO THEY KNOW HOW MUCH I WASNT THERE

YEA, THEY MAY SAY THAT YOU WERE SEEING HIM

AND I WAS JUST A JELOUSE MAN

 

LITTLE DO THEY KNOW HOW MUCH I CARED

BUT IT WAS A LOVE NEVER SHARED

BEFORE I BLEED OUT ILL TAKE YOUR HAND

AND SEE HOW IT FEELS TO BE YOUR MAN

 

I WOKE UP FROM A DREAM

BUT RESTRAINED TO THIS BED

NO, THIS REALLY CANT BE WHAT IT SEEMS

WHEN I PUT THE GUN IN MY MOUTH I MISSED THE TARGET IN MY HEAD

 

COPS STANDING BY ARE SAYING IM GOING TO FRY

 BUT  I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY I DIDNT DIE

STUPID BYSTANDERS, GOOD SAMARITAIN FUCKS

THEY SAVED MY LIFE, LOOKS LIKE IM STUCK

 

HERE ALONE WITH OUT MY LOVE

THE DOC COMES IN TO SEE HOW I AM

SHE SAYS HOW COULD YOU DO THE THINGS YOUVE DONE

I TELL HER SIMPLY, ITS IN THE NAME OF LOVE AND IM A LONELY MAN
