Counting the hours to early light
I can’t keep my mind from my thoughts.
The well-practiced lies, my failings reprised.
So sleepless, I scour familiar ground
Toiling through worthless remorse
Am D D7
But time can’t erase, mistakes that I’ve made.
Lost in shame I bend and burn
Hearing her name, awake, she softly turns
Am C G
There in the shade, choices are made
And she takes my hand, a sweet moment, she understands
C D C D G
Constant and kind, patience entwined, she finds that old, that old, faithful love.
Sifting the past I bring to mind
The night I came home to the truth.
Her message was short, we needed to talk.
Waiting alone, a darkened room
An aching disdain marks her face
Explain my way out? I’m left in no doubt.
Lost in pain her anger burns
Hearing my name, in hate, a corner turned
In words sharp and soft, I learn what I’ve lost.
Bm Am G Em D D7
The devil you know, the wiser you grow.
