lyrics

I haunt the halls a final time
I've taken in all of their anger
The flicker of fluorescent lights
Familiar faces on each stranger

The cake is cut, the banners hung
A ceremony long awaited
The day is out my work is done
Services no longer needed

Labored goodbyes become me
Pleasantries returned in kind
It's only in my leaving
I must face a troubled mind

How long it's been, it s hard to say
For I am weak and much afraid
The broken face of wasted years
Looks back at me from every mirror

(The passion that once filled his eyes
Has left, leaving only conplacense
Theres no one and nothing left to fight
They're all gone now leaving only empty spaces)

California beckoned forward
Sarasota held me back
Those years ago I broke my word
But I never meant for that

The only face I can recall
An overwhelming feeling
That which you made with your withdraw
To the announcement of my leaving

I revisit that day every night
Regretting every sentence
With you I was to share my life
Now only shared resentment

How long it's been, it s hard to say
For I am weak and much afraid
The broken face of wasted years
Looks back at me from every mirror

(The passion that once filled his eyes
Has left, leaving only conplacense
Theres no one and nothing left to fight
They're all gone now leaving only empty spaces)

Years I've wasted
Years I've spent
Years of chasing
Without relent

Years without
Years within
Years of joy
Never began

Years ago
Years gone by
Years alone
A heavy sigh

Years squandered
Years in rooms
Years to wander
Without you
