I never got to say goodbye
It's harder now that your away
I thought of so much more to say
You listened to it as you left

In other words couldn't hold my head
Above the water for long enough to hear
Your final wish is a lost cause
To anyone who heard above the din

I don't have time to dress it up
And all my thoughts come out at once
I loved you more than I could think
Of any other thing that hurts

I will hold my head in the shame you dealt
And it wets my skin as I fall right in
With your conscience clear you can walk away
Take it easy dear, on my swollen skull

    Song MeaningThis song reminds me of four influential men in my life- I can't belive how every verse can bring their image to mind, and how well the words express how I feel. Amazing song


    I never got to say goodbye: My Cousin
    It's harder now that your away: My Husband
    I thought of so much more to say: The Forbidden Ex
    You listened to it as you left: My Father

    In other words couldn't hold my head
    above the water for long enough to hear
    your final wish is a lost cause to
    anyone who heard above the din

    I don't have time to dress it up: My Father
    and all my thoughts come out at once: My Husband
    I loved you more than i could think: The Forbidden Ex
    of any other thing that hurts: My Cousin

    I will hold my head in the shame you dealt: The Forbidden Ex
    and it wets my skin as I fall right in : My Cousin
    with your conscience clear you can walk away : My Father
    take it easy dear on my swollen skull : My Husband
