You can stay in a loveless marriage for years
Claiming it is “for your children”
While they see the daily accounts of their parents
Not ever care for one another.
Who are you really serving?
Staying in this marriage will not get YOUR father back
It will not erase the fact that he walked out on your family.
It will not teach your children to love
When they cannot SEE it in their parents.
You can drive like a lunatic through town
Barely missing pedestrians and cars
Thinking everyone just needs to get the FUCK out of your way
And that won’t bring your husband back from the grave
He will still be as dead
When you are exchanging insurance information
With a stranger.
Your anger and disdain for the world
Will not bring your dead husband back.
You can cock the gun and put it in your mouth
With tears streaming down your face
And you will still not get her to love you.
No matter how dead you are
She will still not be what you want her to be.
That bottle of Jack Daniels you are nursing tonight
Will never take your loneliness away
It won’t make up for the fact that you refuse to open up to any woman
So you sit at home alone every night and drink your life away.
No amount of drink will fill that empty hole in you
That desire for you to be loved
To be touched.
Getting involved with all those ladies
Breaking their hearts
One by one
Will not make you feel more of a man
Than you already are.
You will never be able to make up for the fact
That your mother never truly loved you
You will never understand
That these women, they are not her
You will never get her back this way.
You can be as angry
As you like
And that won’t get them back.
