Ooo Brrrn

I peer through your eyes
I look right to your soul
For clues to tell me
Why it is that you act in control
When you are so un-whole
So lost and un-consoled
I find more vacancy
The signs were clearly foretold

So I will forget no more
Gotta move on to where my love’s adored
My transcendence is near the signs are very clear
I will develop me a will without fear

I see you may be sad
I see you may well mourn
But hey remember both of our hearts have been torn
I’ll remember you
At all your weakest times
And will help me to
Get you off my mind

And into my heart – I’m talking to you
About what you’ll inevitably do
You’ll go on with your game when I just want you to cry
Uncontrollably and ask yourself why
Are we not worthwhile to you anymore
We used to go back so far before
And beyond all this it’s all a circle right?
It's like you never understood why we're alive
When you stand on the edge of everything
You ought to just let wisdom sing
But no worries, you don't have to look back again
I trust that we've addressed all that we could've meant
To have said or been
In every last sense
