the cost

she's so afraid to call
thought i had thought of it all
such a strange way to die
after such a long fall
we finally hit the wall

she likes the city noise
and a long distance voice
and doing what she wants
and acting so annoyed
and leaving me no choice

i like the easy life
and staying up all night
and sleeping in all day
but i woke up to find
i'd wasted so much time

what am i supposed to do
with the time i wasted on you
and all the things
we put each other through
well i wish i knew

guess that's the price you pay
no matter how much you make
i'm sure he'll buy you whatever you want
and tell you everything is ok
and he'll do whatever you say

my girl she doesn't want it that way
the storm came and turned the sky grey
and the lighting lit up her face
and the thunder shook her awake
she said i'm so afraid

baby, don't be scared
cause i told you how i feel
i never would pretend i care
and you know you helped me heal
i know i hurt you bad
you don't have to tell me that
something are hard to forget
it's just kinda how things went
well i'm done with guilt and lies
can't you see it in my eyes
yours are brown like the summertime
i like to see them close so the focus slides
baby you changed my mind
found my heart that i left behind
must have been hard to find
buried under all that ice
with the lessons you learn in life
like take some of your own advice
it's get hard to explain
like the soothing effects of pain
you realize that it's all the same
and there's no one left to blame
but something just seem right
like the snow melting outside
