An Hour Ago
THIS HEADACHE GRIPS MY HEAD LIKE A VICE
WE SIT AND STARE AT THE FLOOR
IN EAR-SPLITTING SILENCE
OUR HISTORY LAID BARE
THE PAST BECOMES THE PRESENT
JUST LET IT GO
LIKE IT WAS AN HOUR AGO

SO CAN WE JUST FORGIVE AND FORGET
SEAL IT WITH A SWEET KISS
WHEN EVERY ACT OF KINDNESS
IS FORGOTTEN IN BLINDNESS?

I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL
I HATE YOU (FOR NOW)
I CAN'T DO ANYTHING RIGHT
IN YOUR PIERCING EYES
IT WAS ALL GOING SO WELL
UNTIL YOU HAD TO DWELL
ON THAT BEEPING PHONE OF MINE
THAT'S WHEN THE ACCUSATIONS START TO FLY

SO CAN WE JUST FORGIVE AND FORGET
SEAL IT WITH A BITTER KISS
WHEN EVERY ACT OF KINDNESS
IS FORGOTTEN IN BLINDNESS?

TAKE ME BACK TO AN HOUR AGO
WHEN EVERYTHING WAS ALRIGHT
AND YOU SEEMED TO KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU
JUST TAKE ME BACK TO AN HOUR AGO
WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMED SO MUCH BRIGHTER
BEFORE THIS DARKNESS DESCENDED ONTO ME

THIS FROWN SEEMS PERMANENT NOW
THE HEADCHE STILL RAGING INSIDE
AND EVERY SENTENCE WE SPEAK
JUST SEEMS TO TURN TO SNIDE
JUST LET IT GO
JUST LET IT GO

WE CAN'T SEEM TO FORGIVE OR FORGET
THERE'S NO MORE BITTER SWEET KISS
WHEN EVERY ACT OF MY KINDNESS
IS FORGOTEN IN YOUR BLINDNESS
WE CAN NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET
BUT NOW YOU SPEAK SO SOFTLY TO ME
JUST LIKE IT NEVER HAPPENED...
