lyrics

I don't recognize the man who stands before me anymore
His eyes are hiding anger and in truth he's looking old
He's got wrinkles 'round those eyes from laughter heard so long ago
Barely clinging to his youth outside the way he wears his clothes

For the first time in my life I don't trust myself alone
I'm good until the darkness drifts in to take hold
I used to be so different, wish I'd be the man you know
Guess he died that night I found her curled up on the floor
She was just a mess of tears and anger at no one
It's frightening to feel so helpless, nothing could be done
Months went by and tears did dry but still something was wrong
'Til I finally solved that mystery of what was gnawing at her soul

Well, I tried to put together the things that fell apart
There ain't a special way to fix her angry, jealous heart
She just needs time, I guess, to find something to fill this hole
Hidden on the dark side of the soul

Well, I gave her all I could until I really had no more
Think I absorbed that darkness hiding deep inside of her
Stole years off my life but still I remained in her pull
That gravity will eat you up, if she doesn't first
Still see her every night when she comes calling in my sleep
Hovers right above me in the comfort of a dream
She puts nickels on my eyes but I still feel her breathing deep
So I lay there so still and hope she doesn't know it's me

Well, I tried to put together the things that fell apart
There ain't a special way to fix her angry, jealous heart
She just needs time, I guess, to find something to fill this hole
Hidden on the dark side of the soul

I don't recognize the man who stands before me anymore
Think I absorbed that darkness hiding deep inside of her.
