Should Have Known Better
I should have known better To see what I could see My black shroud Holding down my feelings A pillar for my enemies I should have wrote a letter And grieve what I happen to grieve My black shroud I never trust my feelings I waited for the remedy When I was three, three maybe four She left us at that video store Be my rest, be my fantasy Be my rest, be my fantasy I’m light as a feather I’m bright as the Oregon breeze My black shroud Frightened by my feelings I only wanna be a relief No, I’m not a go-getter The demon had a spell on me My black shroud Captain of my feelings The only thing I wanna believe When I was three, and free to explore I saw her face on the back of the door Be my rest, be my fantasy Be my rest, be my fantasy I should have known better Nothing can be changed The past is still the past The bridge to nowhere I should have wrote a letter Explaining what I feel, that empty feeling Don’t back down, concentrate on seeing The breakers in the bar, the neighbor’s greeting My brother had a daughter The beauty that she brings, illumination Don’t back down, there is nothing left The breakers in the bar, no reason to live I’m a fool in the fetter Rose of Aaron’s beard, where you can reach me Don’t back down, nothing can be changed Cantilever bridge, the drunken sailor My brother had a daughter The beauty that she brings, illumination
