lyrics

I don't want you to forgive me
But I can't forgive myself
But I might need your hate beside me
If I'll make it here in hell

Arizona seemed to lick me
And it almost left you dead
The reunions came too quickly
For your heart and for my head

Twas that image me running
Of you and all your tubes
Did you guess my outer beauty
Belied an inner truth

If you ever care to see me again
To salt your wounds
Well you know just where to find me
In this lightly padded room

I left you
It should have killed me
But I was already dead

I love you
And still do
But love won't give me
Back my head

I think back to late last summer
At the ranch and playing pool
I sized you up against that drummer
But I emerged the fool

Hindsight it betrays me
Shows me things that weren't there
But it's those things that still linger now you're gone
That make me care

Care to speculate
On where we'll
Both be in a year
Just knowing not together
Only validates my fears


I'll stay warm from bridges burning
They almost beckon me to cross
But their light I'm sadly learning
May not be worth the cost

I left you
It should have killed me
But I was already dead

I love you
And still do
But love won't give me
Back my head (x2)
