Well there’s so many days
And time just moves along
And my memory fades
years into a simple song
Why did you leave me here?
Why did you leave me here alone?

Well there’s so many ways
That a man can get along
And the time he has
is a moment quickly gone
Why am I fighting here?
Why do I even care about a song?

My heart hurts
Thinking of things I haven’t done
And my hands ache
from holding on
Why am I still here
Why do I even care to hold on?

So don’t care about me
If you don’t want my pain
I need love to carry me away


from The Hard Rains, released December 29, 2011
