Anyway

5. Anyway (4.02)

You see it all started out
With the very best of my sincere intentions
So I thought anyway

But that day that we got lost
I could tell she had
Penetrated my defences
But I carried on anyway
And then the moment that we came I could tell we would
Never be the same again

More so anyway
Now feel the burden of my shame
As I try to make some sense out of this brittle life
Oh, anyway

I thought I was strong enough to be everything
You could ever want or need or need of me

Anyway

So then they questioned all my friends
And tooth by tooth they extracted their confessions
So called anyway
Then they read all the books I’d read
And tried to link the authors to my known profession

They failed anyway
But then they put her on the rack
And they broke her perfect back
Into tiny pieces

She never talked anyway
Then they squeezed me till I cracked

And one by one I gave away all her secrets
Forgive me anyway

I thought I was strong enough to be everything
You could ever want or need or need of me
Anyway

And the words that I hear are the lies that you say
I’m not listening to you any more anyway
