Blissed and Gone

 

Lyrics

the sun has blessed
the rays are gone
and all the kids have left their tears and gone home

sweet 17, sour 29
and i can't explain myself
what i'd hoped to find
you were all so kind
when i was near

and if you're still feeling down
then maybe you need me around
to love and hold you
don't say i hadn't told you so
maybe you need me around

i had no luck
i had no shame
i had no cause, just 17 days of rain
and you in my eyes

just one more song to slay this earth
and i can't explain myself just what it's worth
it was all i had, but not all i'd need
and i can't escape the fact that i still bleed

and if you're still feeling down
and if this seems way too loud
then maybe you need me around

i had no voice
i had no drive
i had no choice
i've done my time
i had myself
had my band
i had my love
had no hand in watching it all fall apart

and if you're still feeling down
then maybe you need me around
to lift and scold you
to send you crashing all right now
maybe you need me around
