You wander alone in anger along your recent ancient past Castigating those now for a love that was never meant to last I wonder what crime was it that I did commit unto you Other than be human and treat you the way none others do. It's all in your face and those forever stunning eyes That you could never tell my inner truth from his outside lies You covet your blanket of insecurity, don't know who to be While stoned in your indecision wandering down your wrong way street. There were no strings attached, no, no, no, nothing like that Nothing ventured, nothing gained, if you stand inside the pain Just wanted to see you smile sometime in the shadow of your sun I chose to offer you freedom, but never thought that you'd run All the time we've wasted is time worthlessly spent, We've talked many a mile in my boots but you've never left Some day I'd love to see the look upon your pretty face When you finally realize, you ended up back in the same place. You were my newest religion, I, your latest cross to bare Forgive me his sins; shake the halo from your hair To his hell you are forever bound The resurrection has come and gone and fled to the next town. Nobody's winning here, nobody’s uppin' his worth. You may think you're on a higher plain but you ain't leaving this earth You ain't hungry no more cos you ain't never been fed I guess I'll go on home now and go back to my own bed. There are no stormy seas to prevail, no white capped waves a’ gale. You've abandoned your freedom ship before you set sail. You are no longer mine, so I am not yours to do with as you see fit Don't blame every guy cos you once believed someone else's bullshit I was there to help, but you've got no more white flags to wave For our love is no longer sleeping now but in its grave. I think what you need is to take up and go back home to your mama Married now to your issues and you can't divorce from the drama. Love is a museum for you to visit but never stay All your portraits of pain are hung the wrong way But the galleries have all closed, the sculpture's already been cast You should never roam your future while stuck in your past. So, you'd better leave now, forget those who've bled for you Chase down your shadow to solitude; I'm done playing your fool You've done your time, said your lines, You are now free to break other hearts than mine.
