i haven't visited this place in so long
this click clack humming place
and i haven't felt like this in so long
this burning heart downtrodden feel
could you please come back just for a moment
could you please come back just to tell me i'm special?
no one ever tells me that but you
told me that but you
i keep forgetting to use past tense
sometimes i forget you're gone
i want to hear you play ''its all over now, baby blue''
i want to hear it in your growling voice
i want to hear you alive and humming
i want you to hug me
i want to feel your protection
the safety of you
i want to believe you will always be here
even though you never will
i want you to tell me they're all jerks
i want you to tell me that i am special
that i am worthy and good and sweet and kind
i want to feel your faith in me again
i didn't know how much that faith was worth
until it left me cold
i want to prove to the ones who don't think i'm strong
that i am
i want to show the ones who believe in my strength
that they're right
that i can do this
i can live through this
live through life
but i don't know if i can be strong without you
you are the one forcing me to be strong
to be strong on my own
i think i need you to be my iron heart
to take this ache away and replace it with
i can handle
something less suffocating
but you're gone
and i know
its all over now, baby blue.
