Yet another one that appeared on a compilation. This one was originally released in late 2010. I had bands like Satanic Surfers and Lag Wagon in my mind when composing this.
There was something I wanted to tell you
That’s why I called you on your cell
I let it ring but you did not answer
That’s how I knew something was wrong
I drove up to your place
And let myself in.
I’ll never forget the expression on your face
When I found you dead
How could I have known
That this imitation of a life you led
Was nothing more than a show
Should I have known?
I thought we shared our secrets
I thought that we were best friends
But now it’s too late
Now that you are gone
Looking back on the years I spent with you
You never really opened up
You kept it all inside of you
Until this one day…
You left behind a note, it said:
“Look, I’m sorry, but I
just couldn’t handle the pressure anymore.
I took the easy out.”
Remembering the good times that we had
I know you’re never coming back no matter how I cry
And still I wonder why you didn’t say anything…
Not a word
