I walk by the rivers edge
Skipping smooth wet stones
And watching them sink

I never was a fan of innocence
I've got two black eyes
And an empty fifth of gin

And I see i'm wrong for you
But we tried
You swear i'm hard to lay beside
If i was you i'd run from me most nights
Maybe i was meant to be left behind

Thundering circumstances
Beyond our control rumble in
Counting time by the lines 'round your eyes
As your gentle caress helps me forget

And I think its time to say good night
And you swear im hard to lay beside
Now years seem to pass as we blink our eyes
Maybe I was meant to be left behind
By all of our heartfelt lies
All of our heartfelt lies (x2)
Are not enough this time

And I see i'd love to spend the night
But you found someone else to lay beside
And I know it makes sense
But it's like sand in my eyes
Maybe I was meant to be left behind
