lyrics

How I long to leave you
Leave you in my memory
Memory it covers all our flaws

Oh how you have harmed me
How could I forget you?
How could I forget the damage done?

We paid for all the labor
And the work was endless
How the rain it failed to fall those years

Oh I cry for you
And all that we've been through
Though I said goodbye
I think of you, from time to time

My need for you is over
Like a grown man sober
I pour you out and coldly walk away

If we're only human
What will we go on doing?
and what pain do I have yet to cause?

It hit me like a cargo train
It shook me from my very frame
And now the walls we build, all look the same

Oh I cry for you
And all that we've been through
Though I said goodbye
I think of you, from time to time
