I'll put down this glass
But I won't kid myself, it won't last
I'm hurting, I'm lighting the fuse
You'd sit naked on my knee
And laugh so hard we were just happy to be
Our eight years went by like a drop

And I could not get enough of you
And the sun smiled down on our youth

She would've been ten today
Half grownup with grownup things to say
Our baby girl, our luck, our love
A looker like her mom - smart, delicate, and strong
You both deserved more than me

And as I think back on that day
Hear the crash, see them take her away

And though you never blamed
It was my fault, we were never the same
I'm surprised to find me still here
You cried then you left
I'm dead inside, it was probably for the best
Exhausted, and too tired for us

But I still smile at the stories you told
And how you'd swear we were going to enjoy
Growing old...

    General CommentMuch thanks to TheBM for posting these lyrics.

    This song, in tone, in heart, in meaning; speaks volumes. For the fear of making an ass out of myself, I'll refrain from making sloppy subjective guesses, seeing how the meaning is fairly obvious and self-explanatory.

    Despite the fact that I'm not usually into bands like Pinetop Seven, nor particularly fond of this kind of lyrical approach, this remains one of my favourite songs, regardless of genre.
