Lyrics

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

Chorus
               
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

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

Chorus
