The hours alone, on the fifth day since you've gone.
This broken glass, this early morn.
I rub my eyes in the haze, I'm not sleeping anyway.
I watch the sun rise on the city where I was born.
And I could call, you now, wouldn't matter what I say.
Words just, aren't enough.
I hear our song and press repeat.
I smell your perfume on the sheets.
You always said "Boy, you're not so tough."

And only now can I say; no matter how I shake and shake,
It's these things that make you a man.
Your frozen mind begins to thaw,
You think "My God, my God, my God,
Where was it I began?"

I wish you well, that's what I'd say
If you asked me in the light of day.
But these nights are like a dream I can't shake.
There's your hair and there's your head,
There's your empty place on the bed.
I wish I could scream myself awake.
But I won't go back to what I was, I know now that you are lost.
It's your choices that make you a man.
Your frozen mind begins to thaw,
You think "My god, my God, my God,
Where was it I began?"
