Forgive & Remember Lyrics

Twitching Tongues
Before my eyes, another year goes by.
Life's greatest cost, another loved one lost.
Our time together has come to an end.
To greater heights your spirit will ascend.

If I'd not known your name, I'd never feel this pain.
The price of loving comes with one day feeling numb.
If only there was more that I could do.
To spare the world the pain of living without you.

I will always remember who you were.
I will carry your memory forever.

Now I must move on,
And accept that your being is gone.
It's harder every day since your spirit has faded away.
If only you could take another's place.
In memories I'll beg and plead to see your face.

Disillusioned, in ruins, without any conclusion.
Frustration, isolation, you are now my motivation.

I will always regret what I have done.
I will carry this guilt forever.

How bout I load these 12 gauge shells,
Punch my ticket straight down to hell.
Might go swimmin' with a VCR,
Bleed out listenin' to CCR.
I say it should have been me.
(We say it should have been him)

Might take it easy and jump from the roof,
Swallow some bleach like it's 101 proof.
Slit my wrists and wait for the call,
Rope around my neck 'cause I'm a child of Fall.
I say it should have been me
(We say it should have been him)

Past the point of contemplation,
Time for my self mutilation.
(it should have been)
Full of grandpa's medication,
Time for permanent vacation.
(It should have been)

Disillusioned, in ruins, without any conclusion.
Frustration, isolation, you are now my motivation.

I will always remember who you were.
I will live, and I'll forgive, but I will never forget.
