The Languishing
By Adam Avery

VERSE 1
When you smile it's still sad around the edges
You don't fall asleep in my arms anymore
I get dressed in the dark before the morning dawns
And slip out the door

Lately you've been driving home the long way
And burn each night behind another cigarette
Now the only light we know is the TV glow
How's this one end?

CHORUS 1
But I keep on reaching for your hand
And you keep on reaching for mine
Try as we may, we might never make it back
As long as THE LANGUISHING lasts

VERSE 2
I can still see that bright, blue eyed boy I once knew
And that old beat-up cabin by the coast
Where I took a knee and promised everything
And you held me close

CHORUS 2
So, I keep on reaching for your hand
And you keep on reaching for mine
Try as we may, we might never make it back
As long as THE LANGUISHING lasts

CHORUS 3
Yeah, I keep on reaching for your hand
And you keep on reaching for mine
Try as we may, we might never make it back
As long as THE LANGUISHING lasts
Try as we may, we might never make it back
As long as THE LANGUISHING lasts
