High Beam (Watch It Fall A Part)

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album Footnotes For Departures (2012).

Well if you care to listen and even if you don't
Well I got over needing you a long time ago
I took great care to know you and I gave you all my best
I was living to make you smile I was dying to impress

But all this getting born all these roses and the thorns
And the confusing (more less bloody) parts
I cobbled my life together with them
Just to watch it fall apart

So I took it to the road yeah and I took it from my dreams
Till I became invisible and lost in the high beam
The pen it never ran dry like a sword I learned to wield
I used my words to expose and I used them to conceal

What was heavy as hell and far too much to carry
I wrote my prayers and my S.O.S. on bar stationery
From where I stumbled last night staggering right back to the start
What you learn comes the hard way and will softly break your heart
