it might have looked like we were dancin'
we're hiding our pain in patterns on the floor
we held each other like we were lovers
although we lost that privilege many years before
i know that once we held loves riches
but now inside we're the poorest of the poor
i lost you on that familiar stretch of highway
i could'a sworn i never driven down before
and love will never be the same
under compassions rusted remains
when confusion calls my name
and even memories wouln't explain
i feel nothing
i know you could have tried to save me
but you never really tried to understand my pain
i knew right then the unspeakable would happen
we'd never have to speak so spitefully again
what was now hatred spilled out onto the darkness
for as young lovers we parked and dreamt of what would be
imagined futures that would never come
when the present pacified the passion out of me
and if you were here you would hear me lie
and say i never meant for you to die
when i held you tight that one last time
and knew salvation became mine
i knew that finally you would feel
what i always knew was all too real
we both felt nothing
