So it’s got to this point again
And you ask me if we still can be friends
You say you’ve changed. That it’s you not me
Does it make it better? Well it doesn’t for me.

And now that love has gone I do not want to see tomorrow
This day has murdered sleep and to that end I want to follow

Pray for death. It’s a prayer you’ll get an answer for one day
Pray for death. I just don’t know what to say
Pray for death, I’m just waiting for the world to turn
Pray for death. It’s like I never ever learn.

My hands are shaking, I crave a cigarette
I was no smoker, well not ‘til you left
I got down upon my knees
I clasp my hands together and I make my pleas

The future crumbled. Off went all bets
On went the sack cloth and the coat of old regrets
I dip my head down. Stare at the floor.
I close my eyes coz I don’t want to see no more.
