Once more, for a lost friend.

To clarify, while it may be a song about love, this is not a love song.

Plain Text: Verse
Italics: Chorus

I just want to forget
And wake up fine again
Nevermore haunted by ghosts of a friend

Daily I agonize
That wishes won't suffice
Faced with this truth I can't help but despise

Why do I remember?

Even ten thousand words couldn't start to explain
How I wish I could purge my whole heart of her name
But it seems now the best I could ever see
Is selectiveness in my own memory
Each day amnesia remains my one plea

Since I can't deny the truth
What's left that I can do?
I can't survive giving into these wounds

I just want to set this right
So sunset can fade to night
And I can stop burning in her blinding light


Even ten thousand...

For my sister, but to the bastard who'd rather not admit that I exist.

(Disclaimer: Since the lyrics are vague, I thought I'd clarify that this is about her father, not mine.)

We've established there's nothing she can do
So why should she bother
Wasting effort to prove herself to you?

Just what do you think your approval's worth?
It'll never measure up to what you've done to her
Don't you see that as you tighten she slips
Through your iron grip?

You don't even think I deserve the truth
So why should I bother
Wasting effort to prove myself to you?

Did you convince yourself I'd never know?
Or underestimate how much your failure shows?
Don't you see that you can't wish me away,
Try as you may?

You can call us rejected and refused
But we don't care to bother
Wasting effort to prove ourselves to you

It's not as if we've got much left to lose
So go ahead and call this war if you so choose
Just don't expect us to keep sitting in your sights
Afraid to fight
