"Deep Talk In The Shallow End" as written by and Benjamin Michael Lee....
If you were here I'd slap you senseless
Then I'd ask you where you've been
I'd tell you don't you know I worry
Sitting up each night in fear
And then I'd tell you that I'm angry
And I'd say you did me wrong
And that I hate you 'cos you sneak into
My every single song

If you were here you'd see the damage done
And then you'd feel the shame
I'd make you understand my pain

If you were 'round I'd show you wounds and scars
The proof that you were here
And then I'd make you cry like I did
If my point still was not clear
If you were here I'd scream and
Maybe trash the room if I had time
And then one single word would break your spirit
Just the same as you broke mine

If you were here you'd realize what you did
Stay for a million years
I'd make you cry my tears

But you're not here
And I'm not strong
And this whole thing has gone on too long
I need to leave this on my shelf
But instead I say it to myself

If you were here I'd slap you senseless
If only you were here

    General Commentthis song doesn't need to be explained. to me it's about someone stomping on your heart ('if you were around i'd show you wounds and scars'), and walking out on you.

    you just can't get over it, hence 'i need to leave this on my shelf', but you know you have to.

    General CommentI love this song.

    Yes, about someone being mistreated, their feelings disregarded...his feelings are always so candid. That's why I love Ben.
