Melissa Ferrick – When You Left lyrics

I never asked for answer
Only a fair shot
At what I thought was expected
From the heart
Yeah you told me you had one
Do you remember that
And you told me that I was worth it
Was it easy to forget that
'Cause I don't forget anything
'N it scares me half to death
I remember the color of the doorknob
That you used
Baby when you left
When you left
You left me half full
Half full of emptiness
All bothered and bloodshot
Putting my hand to my head
And you smelled like denial
And my beer tasted like chalk
But I could hear the sound of your footsteps
Like a ticking pocket watch
'Cause I don't forget anything
'N it scares me half to death
I remember the color of the doorknob
That you used
Baby when you left
When you left
And you know that I never asked for love only a friend
'N what I got was some kind of twisted figure of myself again
'N I know that they say you should see yourself in your lover's eyes
But I can see my soul baby
And it makes me want to die
So now is not the time
To ask me to play
'Cause I can't seem to hold on
To any given day
So please just let me stand here
And sing this song
'Cause it's the only thing you ever gave me
And without it I would drown
'Cause I don't forget anything
'N it scares me half to death
I remember the color of the doorknob
That you used Baby when you left
When you left
When you left
