He took the life I thought was mine
Ripped it out of my hand.
Spotted truth on the other side
Yet didn’t know where to land.
He took the air right of the room
Punished for another crime.
It wasn’t that I did anything
It was that he didn’t have a dime.
He took the atmosphere so delicately
Yet was so harsh to the rest.
He was mediocre in most everything
Certainly wasn’t the best.
Heaven took the madness
Swore I’d shed only one tear
I kept that promise to myself
It just lasted over a year.
