he\'s not alright

looking at you now
my screams dig inward to the core
and my voice betrays my reason
i can\'t listen anymore
too words i once believed in
i have nothing more to say
they\'ve been silenced to whispers
and hung with threads of shame

if you came here to save me
you\'re walking too slow
there is nothing left but burned remains
of what i was to years ago
to reconcile my damaged mind
would take more than you have to give
there\'s nothing left but ruined dreams
that diminish all i have

they can hear me now
my screams resound throughout my world
and my words betray my reason
i can\'t listen anymore
for the lies i once believed in
i have nothing but contempt
they tore apart my mind
and left me lying here alone

if you came here to save me
you\'re walking too slow
there is nothing left but burned remains
of what i was to years ago
to reconcile my damaged mind
would take more than you have to give
there\'s nothing left but ruined dreams
that diminish all i have

you can\'t hear me
when i needed you you walked away
you diminish me
with every word you say
you can\'t hear me
i\'m no longer here for you
you diminish me
every time you let me down

if you came here to save me
you\'re walking too slow
there is nothing left but burned remains
of what i was to years ago
to reconcile my damaged mind
would take more than you have to give
there\'s nothing left but ruined dreams
that diminish all i have

he\'s not alright

    General CommentTed Phelps has a real talent for bringing out the raw pain to be found in a relationship's end. Brutal and honest, with lovely and strong melodies. This is the ruin at the end of a long struggle.
