Sleep-Away Days by Martie Hevia

[VERSE 1]
Your paintings hang on my walls,
they’re all that’s left of you.
Your paintings and me
were all you left behind.
You never did look back; and
when you walked away,
you forgot to say good-bye… good-bye.
~
[VERSE 2]
Empty moments and broken promises,
endless sighs.
Timeless dreams of lonely ghosts
running away from their past.
A dried basket of memories
lays in a corner of this room.
“An exercise in trust,” you said,
but you never came home.
~
[REFRAIN]
So if you want me now…
(Back Vocals: If you want me.)
Make me believe again
(Back Vocals: Make me believe.)
Show me how to trust your eyes
‘Cause I won’t sleep away another day,
Believing… believing your lies.
(Last Time End: Your Lies)
~
[VERSE 3]
You left letters and photographs,
and storybook words, songs, and rhymes.
Dried flowers and wine corks
and movie ticket stubs…
Ripped pieces of a marriage license
held by yellowing tape…
I gave you my heart, my soul, my trust
And you took them all away.
(Back Vocals: Away)
[Go to Refrain]
