lyrics

I was riding so high didn’t see the blade held low
‘til my blood ran red, a river in full flow
you looked into my eyes saying ‘I hope we’ll still be friends’
such a civil lie for such a vicious end
you left me with no choice but to pretend

so little pain as the knife slid through my ribs
words spilled from your lips so truthful and so glib
as the world slides away I try to make the pieces fit
to find a path avoiding that last hit
but there’s no puzzle here and no way around it

so if you won’t call me lover
I’ll be damned if you can call me friend
if you won’t call me lover then this
this is the end

you didn’t break my heart I didn’t know you that well
but you broke my dream and that hurts worse than hell
amid platitudes and clichés of ‘it’s not you, it’s me’
the only thing that is clear for me to see
is that woman standing where I wished to be

so if you won’t call me lover
I’ll be damned if you can call me friend
if you won’t call me lover then this
this is the end

all my blood runs black scrawling across this page
in between the ink, the traces of my rage
leaves me battered and bruised fractures still to mend
bare faced truth so much harder than pretend
you’re not my lover and I can never call you friend

so don’t call me over - there’s no comfort you can send
no distance you can cover to reach a gentler end
‘cause you won’t call me lover and I cannot call you friend
trust won’t recover - some things are never meant to mend

beauty is... tears in laughter, small joys even in the midst of sorrow, a drifting feather, a cold beach, the wind over the ocean, cold fingers on the skin making your heart warm, storm clouds and lightning, rain, the sun through green leaves in the morning, voices singing, the rhythm of a drum, the beat of your heart, the sigh of your breath and moments of pure relaxation...and a ukulele helps. ... more
