or
Langhorne Slim

This life goes on since you've left me
But lord, it don't need to
And I'm just thinking about you gal
As you forget me
You were my only truth
And I'm wondering how I could have been so taken
Mistakin' our love for blood
Seems I was fakin'
A man's heart is his own
And only he can break it
I'd start all over alone
If only I could take it

Now time takes its time to pass on by me
You won't find me in no places of old
In my mind don't rewind the times of you smiling
Darling it's a crime you left me so cold
And I can't trust myself
With this hell I am accepting
I stumbled and I fell
Still hoping you'd come protect me
I tried to forget you
That was just a reminder
You've turned a world full of shit
You made it a little bit kinder

So take my breath, god, take it away
Good bye take it
'Cause know lord what was saved
To think that it is you god
That fools kneel and pray
That I found my true love
Now she's buried away
