Oh Well, Okay

  • Here's the silhouette
    the face always turned away
    the bleeding color gone to black
    dying like a day
    couldn't figure out what made you so unhappy
    shook your head to say no no no
    and stopped for a spell
    and stayed that way
    oh well, okay

    i got pictures, i just don't see it anymore
    climbing hour upon hour through a total bore
    with the one i keep where it never fades
    in the safety of a pitch black mind
    an airless cell that blocks the day
    oh well, okay

    if you a get a feeling the next time you see me
    do me a favor and let me know
    'cos it's hard to tell
    it's hard to say
    oh well, okay
    oh well, okay
    oh well, okay
