With paper and pencil, I wrote down some lines
A verse and a chorus full of warning signs
It was long ago, but there still is some pain
Cos' the song remains
He had eyes that held me in that uncomfortable place
And a smile that concealed all the scorn on his face
Over time I got over and a little more sane
But the song remains

And the recurring words open old wounds
The waltzy old meter the familiar tune
Just when I see daylight, just when I see gains
Comes a hard refrain
I remember my singing a chorus or two
While he sat there anxious for me to get through
I guess he knew the ending and it was more of the same
Just a hard refrain

They call this cathartic...to recall the heartache..
but I wish I could forget this song
