The lights are out
I can hear the rain
These haunting images fill my eyes
To keep my fingers from making the same mistakes
Makes my voice
To try and speak up
So my conscience will be clean if I wake up

This won't be easy
Because I want you to mean it
Jolene, just say that you'll mean it

Your looks are dressed to kill
I'm calling you hoping
You won't waste your time on me

Now there's an aching in my back
The stabbing pain that I have lacked
Along with all common sense and self confidence
Will bring an end to all my promises
I have made in my times of desperation, lacking conversation
To hope that my night will end better than yours
Just tell me when....

I never told a lie
But that still makes me a liar
I never made my bed for I gamble with my desires
I never lit a match with the intent to start a fire
But the flames of my life is getting out of control

Call me by my name
Or kill me with words
Please forget about me
It is all I have deserved
You were my chance
To escape this life
But I ditched you and you left me

Wait outside
Let the open air serve as a reminder
That my heart is as cold as the winds on your breath
And my words are as timid as the beating of my heart
