And my heart slams in my chest like a ten pound hammer,
And I sit
In disbelief, as you pour out ever promise I ever needed to hear,
Such a promising lie
The soldier going to war,
But it hits harder than the look in your eyes
Sharp, like the night you left
For an instant I can see it
The pretty pretty picture you paint in my head,
For a moment I let myself believe you,
Something always comes back
That memory that just won't disappear
The baby you made me loose,
I'm walking out the door, keys in hand
Like I hadn't heard a word.
[[how long will you stay this time, baby?]]"
