Throw away that clock,
and watch it as the hands fall to the floor.
And I donít know
I just canít seem to take it any more.
Laughing at broken hands,
that never seem to be on my side.
And as the trains go by, I wish that,
wish that I could run and hide.
But I just canít run away.
And I just canít forget,
forget that lovely day.
I donít care if I ever see.
Cause I just canít bringÖ
Bring myself back to me.
Burning up the photographs,
that capture memories of the past.
Close your eyes, run away,
for I promise, this ainít never gonna last.
Passing by the psycho-house,
and that is where, maybe where I should be,
cause every where I look,
she is all, all that my eyes can see.
But I just canít run away.
And I just canít forget,
forget that lovely day.
I donít care if I ever see.
Cause I just canít bringÖ
Bring myself back to me.
Say goodbye to the one,
that truly knows just who you are.
Take out and rinse off that pain of mine,
no it wonít ever leave a scar.
As I leave you now I wonder,
just what it takes to be friends.
And I ask myself, where,
where weíll be when this all ends.
But I just canít run away.
No I just canít seem to forget.
Forget that sunny day.
Donít give a damn if I ever see.
No, I just canít bringÖ.
Bring myself back to me.

I feel your anguish in this piece and what a piece it is. Truly great writing here
