lyrics

Years have passed, a difficult and depressing life he's lived
he found that comfort in drink, as he drowned the feelings
angry, distressed and some, as death pucks on his heart’s strings
drunken and missing past loves as he carries the weight of torment
head back, down that liquor, slams the glass as he heads to the streets
he’s stumbling now all the way back home, as blurred lights carry the way
his feet drag to the door, his fist bangs on the glass
what happened to that man that she had once loved?

I never understood how things were back then
I was just a kid (I was just a kid)
How could you hold his hand after all he did?
I never come to terms how you’ve done this for so long
(for so long)
Why is this something that you are used too?
How can speak the words ('I love you’)
Because I know your stressed
and I know you’re scared my dear
But what do you call life
when you’re living in fear
Because I know your stressed
and I know you’re scared my dear
But what do you call life
when you’re living in fear

He stumbles in, his wife's alone and hiding from him again
she hears the words that he is slurring, he must be drunk again
because that dirty old bastard has got her scared
with those haunting paces he moves up the stairs
getting closer now she convinces herself
‘its just that's drink talking’
clutching at straws she grips her rosary beads
as she prays to her lord ‘Let him leave me be'
as all hope is lost, her lord was never there
his fist grips her hair
the sheer terror staring back at him.
the loving eyes that have faded and dimmed
through all the years of pain and despair
oh dear god, why didn’t you answer her fucking prayer
