If I was a fly
And I had a day left ‘til I died
I would lay down til tomorrow
You’re clipping my wings
I try to win you back with all my words that you know mean nothing

You could have believed in me

And I saw a tear on a rose and I clipped it off for you
As I gag on my guts ‘cause I’m watching you give up
I’m a tear in the clock as you walk away
I can almost taste the glaze on your lips
Smacking away into the night

They say at least he’s my friend
And he’ll treat you kindly in the end
Call me bitter but I’m brimming with hate for both of you
A film if playing in my head of you fornicating in his bed
The satin sheets are ruby red like your nails that scarred my back

And I saw a tear on a rose so I swept it off for you
I’m a fly on a wall and I’m watching you give up
I’m a tear in the clock as you walk away
I can almost see a shade of your blue eyes
Fading away into the night

You never believed in me
But I will believe in me

Because now I take a match to the rose that I gave, my love, to you
Won’t forgive
Won’t forget
And the rage will lift me up
I hope you choke on his tongue
As I walk away I will not watch his hands as they deftly pull you away
Into the night

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on baseball, yes he is talking about a girl that cheated on him and he will never forgive her and the hurt that she caused him. He describes a couple verses like hes a fly on a wall watching whats going around, fly's have so many eyes and can see so much he knows whats going on....
