The corner store is out of
your brand of cigarettes.
The rain has stopped and left dark gray sidwalks wet.
Twice burned, you're saying things
that you would like to forget.
Its been a while since you've
lost your confidence.

A nervous smile,
an emptly place,
you watch the floor,
I hesitate.

How long
does it take
to know its not just circumstance?
How long
should I wait
knowing there won't be another chance?

Too much, too late,
an emptly place,
you watch the floor,
I hesitate.

Theres nothing left to see.
See my eyes
closed with fear,
tell me what I want to hear.

How long
does it take
to know its not just circumstance?
How long
should I wait
knowing there won't be another chance?

Too much, too late,
an emptly place,
you watch the floor,
I hesitate.

Theres nothing left to say.
See my eyes
closed with fear,
tell me what I want to hear.

Theres nothing left to see.
See my eyes
shut with fear,
tell me what I want to hear.

How long
does it take
to know its not just circumstance?
How long
should I wait
knowing there won't be another chance?

How long?

Theres nothing left to see.
See my eyes
closed with fear.
Can you tell I'm not really here?

How long?

    General CommentMore relationship, obviously fighting, looking at the floor etc. yadda yadda, can you tell I'm not really here? Doesn't even want another chance, wants to leave her but doesn't know how or maybe even want to tell her.
