Nine Days - Another Day

Here's another day she waits and pulls herself away
At just the right moment to save her face
I watch the time go ticking down, the water falling on the ground
I catch myself and try to speak with grace
You needed just enough anger to get you through the door
And you got just enough honesty to make you want a little more

I wish for nothing but the rain
To fall and wash away
Everything that I've done wrong
Find a way to make you strong
If only for another day

When I'm all alone, just me and my ghosts
Standing three deep, just like sentries at their post
And they make sure I remember just a little more than most
They make sure that I understand the consequence of past

You needed just enough anger to get you through the door
And you got just enough honesty to make you want a little more

I wish for nothing but the rain
To fall and wash away
Everything that I've done wrong
Find a way to make you strong
If only for another day

When you see me chasing daydreams and you know that I'm not there,
I'm not the one who sits across from you, who, returns your stare
And I watch as you grow quiet like you always did
And I wait to get what I deserve
It's the part that doesn't die that makes it hurt...

Here's another day, she waits and pulls herself away
At just the right moment to save her face
I watch the time go ticking down, the water falling on the ground
I catch myself and try to speak with grace

I wish for nothing but the rain
To fall and wash away
Everything that I've done wrong
Find a way to make you strong
If only for another day

If only for another day
