Fade

 

i guess you must have had

too much of that wine

started to whine too much

’cause you’re torn up inside

and inside the clutch

of the alcohol

and the yesterdays

don’t know what to do

walking in a maze

of uncertainty and sad regret

responsibility

you hadn’t wanted yet

nothing seems to last

even though you try

all the endless hours

you sit alone and cry

because things aren’t the same

way that they used to be

you haven’t got a grip

on your reality

yet you want it all

the dreams that you had made

the goals that you had set

you sit and watch them fade

you sit and watch them fade

as though nothing is real

although you see yourself

you’re numb and you can’t feel

and so you cry for want

to know you’re still alive

you push away your world

and then you take a dive

into another sip

that makes it go away

you take another trip

to escape yesterday
