The Sad, Lonely Bard

Written by: John Lipari

Follow me down but don't chase too hard,
I'm resigned to my lot; the sad, lonely bard.
You can try to save me, but it won't be worth it
You may well love me, but I don't deserve it.

I wish things were different, really I do
That I could commit, build a paradise with you.
We could have been great, don't think I don't know it
I'm being sincere though don't know how to show it.

Why are you here, why do you try?
It kills me each time I cause you to cry but,
Hurt you I will, it's all I know how
So it's best we forget and bury this now.

I've chosen my road and you're welcome to take it,
It's dark, cold and dusty, don't think you'll make it.
Dare, follow me down but don't chase too hard,
I'm resigned to my lot; the sad, lonely bard.
