And it's been awhile since I could
Hold my head up high
And it's been awhile since I first saw you

And it's been awhile since I can stand
On my own two feet again
And it's been awhile since I could call you

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've stretched myself beyond my means

And it's been awhile since I can say
That I wasn't addicted
And it's been awhile since I can say
I love myself as well and

And it's been awhile since I've gone
And fucked things up just like I always do
And it's been awhile but all that
Shit seems to disappear when I'm with you

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've gone and fucked things up again, yeah

Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day

And it's been awhile since I could
Look at myself straight
And it's been awhile since I said I'm sorry

And it's been awhile since I've seen the way
The candles light your face
And it's been awhile but I can still remember
Just the way you taste

And everything I can't remember
As fucked up as it all may seem to be
I know it's me, I cannot blame this on my father
He did the best he could for me

And it's been awhile since I could
Hold my head up high
And it's been awhile since I said I'm sorry
