The Songs I Never Sang For You

I toss and turn I freeze and burn here in my bed
Sounds and noises whispered voices in my head
Of all the ways I could have stayed and made it new
But now they're gone the songs I never sang for you

The man he said you must be ready when it comes
Don't slow your hand or take for granted where it's from
From where you've been look out the window at the view
Where they belong the songs I never sang for you

You were dusty
You were drying
You were withering
Falling off the vine

I stayed inside and tried to hide the things I thought
But truth be told we grew too old the line too taut
I tried to see eternity as we were two
They took too long the songs I never sang for you

You were dusty 
You were drying
You were withering
Falling off the vine

And I thought I left you all the way behind
But the miles didn't chase you from my mind
And I thought I left you when you went away

As days go by before your eyes the river ran
Carve out a way with every day and every plan
A thousand years we're nowhere nearer to the truth
Of what went wrong the songs I never sang for you

You were dusty
You were drying
You were withering
Falling off the vine
