Used to be

Used to be that

Every time I saw you

I walked away and cried

From the tone in your voice

The way you raised your eye

The whisper on your breath

You thought you could deny

Used to be that

Every time I saw you

I caught you in a lie

hints and blunt suggestion

Words like bricks would fly

But now i never cry

Since i stood my ground

And took my aim

And drew pistols at fifty paces

And shot the crooked lie

Here I’ve hung it out to dry.

Hear

Here I am saying these words to you in case I die soon

Here I am saying these words to you
Here I am saying
Here I am
Hear
I Am
Here I am / not knowing / who / I would be / without him
Without him / I would be / who? / Not knowing, / am I here?
