a dark song about regret and the shit we go through in the trials and tribulations associated with love.


On the edge of believing
Could you give me a reason
Now I know that we’re over
But I’m feeling much older
Turn to crimson and clover
Through the doubt I still could hold you
Two serious faces filled with regret
Fearing confusion, reconciled by neglect
I had something to show you
Stand my ground I will own you
Enigmatic conclusion
Bereft of young allusions
Said you’re thinking of dying
If you jump I wont deny you
Half racked emotion, I dream to forget
Misplaced your trust, I wont forget

She’s always on my mind
Got nothing left to use, but afraid to die
(I Don’t Know Why)

She’s always on my mind

I existed before you
Fear this time, I must implore you
And it’s quite clear I’ve lost it
I know this time you won’t object
That it’s over now
I know it’s over now
There are things I’ll remember, wish you’d forget
I can’t understand why it goes to my head
If you could live, I would face it
This time embrace it
Give into logic, cause I wont deny you
You were my savior my sweetest regret
Without a doubt was the emptiest threat

She’s always on my mind (L – O – V – E )
Got nothing left to use, but afraid to die (L – O – V – E )
(I Don’t Know Why) (L – O – V – E )

She’s always on my mind (L – O – V – E )
