Just down the street I tripped to my knees
It didn't hurt much, sure knew how to bleed
Boy, sit here a minute- let's see what we've got
Well, it's just an abrasion, you might have it looked at
And I'm ripe for picking; I'm branded, I'm marked
I'm up for departure… when does this flight leave?
I don't really miss you when the sky is below me
I don't need to love you if I don't need to breathe

And so far so good…

And I'm sorry, but I'm tired now
And a good sleep is my only comfort
I'm tired now, and I'm sorry
But a good night's rest is my only friend tonight

Here lies my love- she's hardly breathing
Take my love! Take my love! Take my love and make her sing again!

And it hurts like a bitch but it's too good to lose
It's a scar worth displaying- it's my purple heart
See, the sadness is beauty and the mourning is song
The sobs in the night are the rain on the burn

And so far so good…

And I'm sorry, but I'm tired now
And a good sleep is my only comfort
I'm tired now, and I'm sorry
But a good night's rest is my only friend tonight

And I'm sorry I walked away… cold… so angry
I would have made it right had I seen you again

And I'm sorry…
