Killing a bird with a knife
Turning away from her life
All that I do isn't right
Losing my way in the night

Ever reading... something's bleeding in my soul
And I can't seem to fill up the hole
And I love you... thinking of you... bitter sweet
So I bury the feeling and empty my head
Just to sleep... too deep

Watch me suffer... try to cover up the pain
And I stand on the roof in the rain
And I love you thinking of you... bitter sweet

So I bury the feeling and empty my head
Just to sleep... too deep

    General CommentAnother of Ty's marriage breakup songs. This one's even better live.

    "sweet", he still loves her and the memories of her
    "bitter", it's over, and he can't bear to let it go

    I can't really relate (thankfully) to the subject matter, but the emotions come through. The soothing guitar melodies are a nice counterpoint and enhance the meaning of how Ty's lulling himself to sleep.
