Im going to close my eyes
and never open them again
Its plain to see, my heart gave way
but its because of you that I break not bend
and the last words that trickle out my mouth will ring in silence

Cmon you know I always heard you out
and you brought about more pain than I could handle

A fatal love and forgotten pulse
growing fainter with every minute
What I need is one second of your time
to loosen this rope long enough letting three words slip by
Im remembering every car ride and sunset we absorbed
despite youve got me dangled, tangled, and undeniably ignored

Cmon you know I always heard you out
and you brought about more pain than I could handle

"forgiven, forgotten"
drowned so often
in the water under the bridge,
the water under the bridge.

Cmon you know I always heard you out
and you brought about more pain than I could handle

Ive been waiting for the longest time
untie this noose and Ill be fine
Im short of breathe and hanging from my neck all for you
My flesh is searing from this knot youve tied
regret, and blood, and pride collide
swelling at my head and hands
swollen I find myself still waiting

    General CommentI think this song is about wanting forgiveness from someone but that someone isn't even allowing them a chance to speak but instead is essentially just giving them more and more sh//t for whatever it is that happened. The song speaks of countless times when the person at the receiving end of the wrong doing was forigven and things were forgotten and there is so much water under the bridge that they're almost drowning in it and now that it's the other person's turn to forgive and forget they won't and "tie a noose" around the culprit's neck.

    General CommentOh, and one more thing. I LOVE this song. LOVE IT. However, I've never heard it. Anyone know if it's old from Ben's days or possibly something which will be on The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi?
