#1
Oh where have you been?
The day is nearly done.
You come crawling home at 9pm
About the time of the setting sun.

Our summer lust is dead,
Washed into the street.
I’m left feeling just a little worn down
With this idea that I’m incomplete.

Now the rain is due,
It turns the dirt to mud,
So I bust out my best winter coat
To protect myself from the flood.

Now we have to part.
I’m crying on my knees.
But there were some good times at the start
I’ll remember those days at least.

Oh where have you gone?
The autumn’s almost here.
You’re an enigma and I hope you know
Like the leaves you fall and disappear.

I’m a rotten apple fallen from the tree, that is me,
I’m a human barely living,
I’m a human barely living,
I’m a human barely living,
I’m a failed human being.
