Drowning Next to You

I went to your grave today.

Since You Went Away

I came to see you today

oh, it’s been so long — since you went away.

I left flowers on your grave

Where part of me lies buried

Under all the words you said

Under all the blame you gave

Your suicide was more than just Your end

Parts of me are dead and gone

Oh how I wish you could see me now

I’m sorry for all of the pain

I’m sorry for all of the words

I’m sorry I walked away

Now I’ll never know what might have been

Because you left me here

Drowning in regret

Killing all the parts of me — the parts that were killing you

And I’m better now

Oh how I wish you could see
