the bittersweet ep

Bittersweet
The Take

Music & Lyrics by: J. Ketchmark / D. Smith

I can barely spare the attention for this
Can hardly hold it in
You have clearly made a career of this
So where do I begin
Take your time to savor this little bit
Before my patience wears thin
Blur the lies, the maybes and the could of bins
To talk you’re way out again
When you feel it closing in


I can’t be your savior
I can’t be the one, you come running to
I can’t be your savior
I can’t be the one, you come running to
I can’t save you


There’s a line and you stepped over it
Can’t tell how long it’s been
Have you spilled your guilt on enough of this?
To drown out the violins
Pay no mind to favors so brittle fit
Pretend it’s a dream your in
How could your conscience allow this?
To suffer it again
Are you forgetting where you’ve been?


I can’t be your savior
I can’t be the one, you come running to
I can’t be your savior
I can’t be the one, you come running to
I can’t save you


All the tears I’ve tasted
All I’ve sacrificed and wasted
All the time I’ve spent with you
But still alone
All the years I’ve made excuses
For your illness and abuses
All the nights I knew that you weren’t
Coming home
