God oh why did you not tell me
Hearts weren't made of sticks and stones?
Words no longer go right through me,
Now they stay and break my bones.
Hearts are not easily mended,
Sometimes they cannot at all.
Knocked down far too many times
Now it's easier to fall.
Late at night I hear the voices
Of memories that long since died.
Drops of blood straight from the heart
Every time I broke down and cried.
You said that you would always love me,
"Forever and Always" in June.
Now August comes and it seems that
Forever ended a bit too soon.
So now hell is laughing at me
Heaven joins them in their taunt.
Ghosts of past come always to me,
My heart the grounds they love to haunt.
Insanity keeps on pushing me
Always closer to the end.
I look around at all the faces
But ne'er do I see a friend.
Alone I'm on this empty freeway
That used to be the road of life.
Every exit that I come to
Marked always with pain and strife.
The end of the road is coming too slow
So I say "Full speed ahead!"
Seems these phantoms won't stop haunting
Until I am gone and dead...
