And it's been awhile Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile Since I first saw you
And it's been awhile Since I could stand on my own two feet again And it's been awhile Since I could call you

And everything I can't remember As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered I've stretched myself beyond my means 
And it's been awhile Since I can say that I wasn't addicted And it's been awhile Since I can say I love myself as well
And it's been awhile Since I've gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it's been awhile But all that shit seems to disappear when I'm with you

And everything I can't remember As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered I've gone and fucked things up again 
Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day!

And it's been awhile Since I could look at myself straight
And it's been awhile Since I said I'm sorry And it's been awhile Since I've seen the way the candles light your face
And it's been awhile But I can still remember just the way you taste 
And everything I can't remember As fucked up as it all may seem to be I know it's me
I cannot blame this on my father He did the best he could for me

And it's been awhile Since I could hold my head up high
And it's been awhile Since I said I'm sorry
