HERE I FALL

I find it easy to put into words my distaste for you
But I can’t face you
I can’t face the truth
Now, get me up close and personal with all the lies you’ve told
And I will hold onto yours
As well as my own

I can’t fix what you have broken
You’ve left me with these words unspoken
Here I lie, a man of fortune
Drowned in whiskey, falling forward now
Here I fall

You grip tightly onto your anger
While they remain blind to the pain you cause
They only see honor
They see love
But I know the truth your veins hold inside
For I have seen you barren as the driest land
You cry, child
You are no man

Can you feel what you have broken?
I call upon these words unspoken
I must lie, no man of fortune
Give me whiskey, falling forward now
Here I fall

Show me the way to fall with grace
You’ve been here then
I’m here no
Show me how
So they’ll take me back

Here I fall
Completely broken
Goodbyes unspoken
Save for that of my fortune
As I fall forward
Now, here I fall
