lyrics

GONE IS THE WAY

You got back half-way empty
after 2 tours in the war
and you’d tell me stories nightly
filled with anger and remorse

I would listen very quietly
scared but always wanting more
You never said so but I figured
killed one man maybe more

Gone is the way
Your stories would last for days
They’re buried with your bones
and ended suddenly the same way
you disappeared from our home

I couldn’t shake the sickly feeling
you sat on the corner of my bed
in a voice unfamilliar
like the whispers of the dead

I woke one morning half way sleepy
after 2 months in your head
Heard the screen door and some footsteps
I stayed there in my bed

Don’t go away
Don’t leave
Please stay
