Lyrics

It's been over 30 days I've not received your letter My fingernails are chewed down to the bone So many different ways I've tried to say I'm sorry While I'm left here in this 8 by 10 alone It's not the four walls moving in that tortures me It's not the cold cement or shivers down my spine It's just them visions in my head that make me paranoid And wonder if when I get out will you be mine I never should have treated you so bad my love I'm sorry I'm broken I can see that now it's true My picket fence has turned to razor wire and now I'm awaiting trial For things you have to know I did not do If I could get a word with you I'd be just fine Or any envelope with both your name and mine Would be enough to keep me going In a world where I'm left knowing that There's something more to live for just outside Seems like the last time, feels like the first Though I've had bad days this has to be my worst I'm left thinking of you dear While I'm waiting here I haven't seen the sun since it rested on your shoulder While we walked along that vacant riverside They carried me away to a place where I'll get older If I cannot prove to them you never died Seems like the last time, feels like the first Though I've had bad days this has to be my worst I'm left thinking of you dear While I'm waiting here Seems like the last time, feels like the first Though I've had bad days this has to be my worst I'm left thinking of you dear While I'm waiting here
