It's Not Fair
Nobody understands this pain inside.
Maybe least of all myself.
The day I lost you, I died.
33 yrs up on this shelf.
Was young and wild, no bigger fool.
Now I am governed by a different rule.
Because clouds of someone's misguided youth.
Can break your heart when you learn the truth.
I believed so long in all the lies.
Came to learn I'm not so wise.
And that time don't give a damn.
Who the hell I think I am.
The mirror of age, the faded page.
The mellow peace turned into rage.
To lose the game that's not a game.
Leaves you to never be the same.
It leaves you asking why was I born.
Surely not to just be forlorn.
Feeling like nobody's there.
This can't go on, it's not fair.
