FREE CEE sitting alone on deadwood aint good

           SITTING ALONE ON DEADWOOD AIN'T GOOD

Although I wanted her to stay I needed her to do what made her feel best
and so she left me here recalling what it felt like to lay upon her chest
I was setting her free even though I wanted to keep her in a cage
and now i'm sitting in one spot filled with grief and rage

So she left me sitting in a chair formed of a thousand year old deadwood
sitting all alone remembering the place where she and I once stood
we stood there starry eyed with plans we were sure would come true
but now here sit I lonely and for me that's nothing new

I was hoping she'd stay because she'd know I wanted her here
but she made her feelings more than perfectly clear
she knows that being alone for me is nothing but a bore
yet and still the lady chose to walk out alone straight out the door

one would think she'd know I didn't wanted her to go
but then again what the fu*k does a fool like me know
in her arms is where I feel I was born to belong
but she left with the sound of a sour symphony and a sordid song

we sometimes used to dance to a song unlike the one I just heard
as she strolled out the door aimlessly without a single word
earlier I had been telling her that I wasn't sure I could stay where I am now
i'd like to remain here but I know for sure I don't know how

I don't know a lot and I don't know anything for sure
I just know her actions and empty words are things impossible to endure
she knows I never want to let her out of my arms
but she takes advantage of the fact that I am entranced by her charms

I wanted her to stay but if she wanted to leave that's what I wanted for her to do
while I was hoping she'd rather stick to me like glue
but glue eventually dries up and things fall off the wall
just like the chair I sit upon made of ancient wood that finally came to fall
