Song Description

My love left me and slept with other men, then came back to me. I thought I could get over it...but I didn't, and don't, know how to get it out of my mind. Everywhere I went I know they'd been--and she liked it, too. It makes my gut turn over just to w

The man I used to be could choose not to see such things
But baby you have brought too much

You've got broken fingers holding broken rings
I can't heal you! I can't heal you!
