The Same

You ran away to be an ancient mystery
My conscience holds you here, you’re hardly history
You left a lasting mark, distinctive imprint
Not just a jagged heart, you left a scar

And late at night, girls ask me what it is
And when I tell the truth, they run their fingers down it
And you know what, you bitch?
Sometimes when I’m alone
Got this house to my own
I do the same

I still do the same

You ran away from me and just left pity
An air of bitterness; what did you think you’d taught me?
A year of wondering; two years of second-guessing
As for the introspection, hardly a lesson

And late at night, girls ask me why I’m drinking
And they’d be horrified if they knew what I’m thinking
Cause even in their arms, even inside them
Despite their pretty words, I can’t feel the same

I can’t feel the same

You ran away from me
I can’t feel
I can’t feel the same

It promises to be as handsome as the man himself. He may have written his own bio. ... more
