as bad as all that

saw you standing in the middle of a crowd
looking like you wanted to cry out loud
but instead you were holding it all inside
though you weren’t hiding it very well

was it so hard?
was it as bad as all that?
why did we let it start
if it was going to be that bad?
is there nothing?
nothing else to be said?
is your heart bluffing,
or is this all just in my head?
was it so hard?
was it as bad as all that?

heard you were trying to drown in a drink
you tried so well you were on the brink
of falling farther down than you’ve ever been
it’s hard to go on after all of that

was it so hard?
was it as bad as all that?
why did we let it start
if it was going to be that bad?
is there nothing?
nothing else to be said?
is your heart bluffing,
or is this all just in my head?
was it so hard?
was it as bad as all that?

  1. To live inside these ruins where you move without a sound
    Oh, to live inside these moments and die outside your town
    Oh, to break forth into sonnets
    Oh Lord, keep me coming back
    The stories that you tell your head to keep your heart intact…lyrics:After All You've Done For Me
