You cry now because it's over,
But for me it never really began.
You're just like some drug,
That never quite kicked in.
You're like a good time that we both never had.
And I say, hey get used to this,
This feeling of being abused.
Though you'll hesitate,
And contemplate,
You'll still end up getting screwed.
Light of day it's shining in on you,
And you, and you're so messed up,
And tired of everything they do.
And anyway, no one ever stays,
Anyway.


In the word's that I have forgotten,
You are the plans that I have misplaced.
And I've lost the need to need you,
And the desire to remember your face.
And you could stand the moods for a lifetime,
But we don't have that luxury.
And in the future,
When you're looking back,
Is this really what you want to see?


And the light of day is breaking into view,
And it shows our pain,
We fail and all we tried to do.
And anyway, no one ever stays.
Anyway.


Her arms are reaching for you,
Have mercy, please be kind to me.
Her eyes are pleading with you,
Have mercy, please be kind to me.
Her mouth, her mouth still whispers,
Have mercy, please be kind to me.
Her lips are faded, faded,
Have mercy, please be kind to me.
Her eyes are stained with tears and,
Have mercy, please be kind to me.
