I: This Time

You’ve heard the rumours
About my best friend
So have I
Now he’s late again
It was always work
He couldn’t get through
I sit and wait
Wondering what to do

This time
It’s gone too far
No more tears
No more scars
I don’t know why
We persevered
This time
It stops right here

Katie never liked him
She never said why
You deserve better
She said with a sigh
(But) Who’s she to talk
With all her love life
I should call her now
And apologise

This time
It’s gone too far
No more tears
No more scars
I don’t know why
We persevered
This time
It stops right here

Why don’t the cops
Bust down this door
Secure the scene
Pick me up off the floor
Say I’m not the first
He’s hurt like this
He’s been around
He’s broken hearts before

This time
It’s gone too far
No more tears
No more scars
I don’t know why
We persevered
This time
It stops right here

I’m not tired
I could rage all night
But there’s nobody here
No one here to fight

I: This Time
