Song Lyrics

The Sad Bastard Waltz (in two movements)

Finally a new song! I might record this and actually put a video up here of me playing it, but in the meantime, here’s the lyrics.

The Sad Bastard Waltz (in two movements)

You share your cigarette as you hang up the phone
Sure sucks getting caught in this, but it’s nice to not be alone
And you say “have you ever seen the rain as a sort of celebration?”
And I say “what a strange way to start a conversation”

And just like that you dive into my mind
And I have all my reasons not to let you inside
And you say “I’ve never met someone like you in this town”
And I swear, I swear I’m ready to give up now

What intricate moves you seem to have
You lead me to the floor but I never could dance
And you say “why won’t you let go of what was before?”
And I say “because I fear I love the fantasy more”

It’s all so dramatic, it’s all so sincere
The way you tug my heartstrings like it’s everything I fear
You break through my defenses I can’t stop renewing
With all of your senses, you’ll be my undoing

It’s all so dramatic, it’s all so fucked up
All my self abuse in all that I’ve become
You’re the hissing of the static, the wind that moves the trees
You rush into the foreground doing anything you please

I long for lover’s touch, a glimpse of disregard
With no point of reference, how could I let it get this far
You beg me to come out now, but I just can’t let go
The loneliness and misery are everything I know

I’m bound to discontent in all that I pursue
But if I had the option, I’d trade it all for you
So take this weak delivery, the best that I can show
I can’t keep fighting, so into your heart I go
Into your heart I go

You share your cigarette as you hang up the phone
Sure sucks getting caught in this, but it’s nice to not be alone
