about

A song about going no-contact with a narcissist

lyrics

When I was a young boy
I couldn't wait to have my space
Somewhere to run
Somewhere to hide

Now that I'm older
All that shimmers fades away
Into the dust
Into the night

Like the highway patrol
You will never say you're out of control
Like a river of rain
How the thoughts go streaming through your brain

Bitter and twisted
You would always try and say
I was the one
I was to blame

Trust is a monster
One that never shows his face
I've no more time to waste

Like the highway patrol
You will never say you're out of control
Like a river of rain
How the thoughts go streaming through your brain
Always
I miss the sound of my own empty heart
So I'll leave your soul in the dark

And your history bores me
There's no mystery
You just lie to me
I never let you down
But you would let me drown
So hopelessly
You won't get another opportunity

Like the highway patrol
You will never say you're out of control
Like a river of rain
How the thoughts go streaming through your brain
Always
I miss the sound of my own empty heart
So I'll leave your soul in the dark
And I pray this river will part
Going to leave your soul in the dark
Going to leave your soul

I'll leave your soul
I'll leave your soul

Going to leave your soul in the dark
Going to leave your soul in the dark

Always
I miss the sound of my own empty heart
So I'll leave your soul in the dark
Going to leave your soul in the dark
