lyrics

Grandma left us this time last year
and I still don’t know why I’m here
Mama still cries herself to sleep
but all that dark just keeps me awake
Put on the TV what else can you do?
You can only make love for so long
All those feelings used to be so strong
I guess feelings they die too
If only God knew how sorry I am
If only I could see Christ rise again
When Grandma said she was afraid to die
was it her in that bed or was it I
Mom laid by her side and held her so right
Saying everything’s gonna be alright
Grandma used to sleep with the TV on
It’s better then dark, it’s kinda like dawn
Maybe in my childhood something went wrong,
but I don’t think I’ll get away with this one
And my best friend let me down again
Guess that’s why he’s my best friend
Says he’s going back to the old high school
Says the girls are pretty there, prettier then you
And I still think of Grandma from time to time
going back to work when the sun is shining
One of these days I’m gonna be a big man
One of these days I’m gonna learn to die
If only God knew how sorry I am
If only I could see Christ rise again
‘Cause grandma left us this time last year
and she didn’t leave us so well
Some smile and pray, some scream and yell
and inside I’m screaming like hell
Mama still cries herself to sleep
but all that dark just keeps me awake
Put on the TV what else can you do
You can only make love for so long
