The Tracks Beyond Us

I could say you’re
Unfaithful
So ungrateful
But mainly I just feel ashamed
On good days it
Wasn’t painful
But still unable
To give you love worthy of the name
If you beckoned me near
I’d still feel the fear
The fog of my heart so unclear
How in the world did I steer
To get me from there to right here?

I look at
The tracks beyond us
And let’s be honest
They’re taking us too far away
I look at
The tracks beyond us
And the broken promise
But my heart gets stronger each day

Alone in my
Head space
In this dead place
With moments my steps can’t retrace
At home with a
Blank face
And an angst face
I still cannot feel like I’m safe
The bed forgets your smell
Oh, the tales it could tell
Lock me up in my shell
Lower me into this well
Entranced by a memory’s spell

I look at
The tracks beyond us
And let’s be honest
They’re taking us too far away
I look at
The tracks beyond us
And the broken promise
But my heart gets stronger each day

Would that you’d never left
‘Cause every breath
Is harder than death to accept
Leaving me so bereft
With every step
A sad joke that I just don’t get

I look at
The tracks beyond us
And let’s be honest
They’re taking us too far away
I look at
The tracks beyond us
And the broken promise
But my heart gets stronger each day
