loved to death

first draft…strange that i should be working on this song when news of andrew and joan downes taking their lives at dignitas comes through..happy little number..but the thought that you could love someone so much that you could take their life…well, could you? may change a few bits around but have a listen…

blog lyrics

pay as you go

i was there when you hit the wall
i heard you call
but i know my limitations
i was there time and time again
its still the same
its the cruelest situation

you pay as you go
yes you do
well i couldnt be
what you want me to be
you think what you want
what you want
well i couldnt do
what you want me to do
you pay as you go
you think what you want

youre heading on a downward path
it would drive me mad
to see you
going down
going down
it could only end this way
you didnt have to say
to tell me
you were gone
you were gone

rpt..chorus
