The Last Straw
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 10-22-2017

You know I should have seen it coming
But, I couldn't believe it was coming from you
You gave up the love and just for the money
Leaving the memory so black and so blue

And the words that you spoke were all too familiar
So mixed up and muddled, they lie in the shade
It's hard to believe, you forgot to remember...remember?
But thanks for the glass from the penny arcade

--- Chorus ---
But it the last straw
Yeah, the last straw
Oh, it's the last straw
It's the last straw and it's breaking my heart
There's nothing left but to cry bloody teardrops
That stain and burn, as they fall
And wait for the time that I don't remember...remember?
The wooden heart that ended it all

-Instrumental Verse-

-Repeat Chorus-

I still find it hard
To Believe

-Repeat Chorus-


Really sad and soulful piece. Really good instrumentation. The steel guitar adds a beautiful touch to it.
