It's been so long since you've been here, and I'm dying
Is there something you would like to say?
Just drop the present on the shelf, by the flowers
And make the feeling go away
Looking back I can't recall, who was listening
When I used to walk the streets at night
Like a bird that used to sing, I was flying
I was happy all the time, and it's hard to look back

Better days and different ways I can't explain
Another song to sing it all was simplified
Don't know what it's about, what have I learned to live without?
It takes a day to live a life

I can't believe the way the world is so different
Look what the lines in my face have made
Living in my bed I'm right next to the road
The one that goes the other way, takes me to a different place

Did you know, that I was just as young as you
I had a job, a home, a family, and a car
Did you say that yesterday or just right now?
You'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart
Did you say that yesterday or just right now?
You'll never know the feeling of my bleeding heart
