Glass Curtain

A stanza at the end of the year
Wouldn't show how much it meant
It almost seems like it was a different world
That has come to an end

Life back then seemed like just a fleeting dream
The kind of thing where you can't wake up
No matter how much you scream

And we'd wait for the end
Well, whatever that meant
And one day it came
Amongst regret and shame

And God almost claimed you
And gravity almost maimed you
And in the end
I had to make my choice

Sweat rolled down my spine as I drove home
I expected hate and hell
What I got was warmth within your embrace
Inside your hospital cell

And all weekend, we rushed back to you
It may have only been for an hour
But it was worth its weight in gold

And we grew closer ever since
Looking back, I'd wince
Like I don't wanna mince
Another goddamn word

Thinking back, it was me
That had caused misery
And now every day
I get to look on back

And think about how I ruined it all

I don't know what's coming next anymore
I really never did
All I've got is hope and another promise
That the old regret would be rid

It doesn't feel like the old brand of hope
Less like getting high, and more like trying to cope
With every memory 
Dreams of you and me
And I'm back in your arms
Without it meaning a thing

Unlike that day at the graves
Where all that I craved
Was just one more touch
So I could be enslaved

Now I'm giving my all just to live
