WNL

WNL CVII: "There's an empty space in my bed, it's just too big these days"

Well, I stare at the hole in my hand and I watch you slip away
And I feel if I'd only done better then maybe I could make you stay
Then I stare at the hole in my head and I can't remember things I say
Hour to hour, sentence to sentence, day to day

Well I could, but I don't
And I should, but I won't
It's laughable

Well, there's an empty space in my bed, it's just too big these days
Even as I hold you, I'm letting you go somewhere far away
And there's an empty space in my heart, but my friends say boy now you're free
Freedom's not a ring around your finger, I can tell them its a memory

Well I could, but I don't
And I should, but I won't
It's laughable

How do you tell someone goodbye
How do you find a place to hide
When all you feel these days is empty inside

Well I remember the last time we met and you held a stranger's hand
You introduced him to me and said can we try and be friends

Well I could, but I don't
And I should, but I won't
It's laughable

It's laughable

-Laughable
