A 1000 Questions for You

This song is by David & The Citizens and appears on the album Stop the Tape! Stop the Tape! (2006).

A thousand pages all about you in a darkened room
A thousand questions I have asked you, like a 5-year-old
A hand over my mouth, still questions pop out
The city was a sparkling diamond, but a hidden secret kept under her sweaty T-shirt
In the salty water
A hand over my eyes, still I can see it all
I meant to dress you up in words
And paint a picture of our love
But the memory is fading and soon you'll be gone
You came and you left my life in a shadow
Every morning I would walk through empty parks
Just as the sun came up to kill the dark
Biting my tongue to keep the screams down
And I felt like an empty shell, I was not myself
Not who I used to be when you walked with me
Something about you made me complete
I meant to be there when you fell
I meant to be steady and calm
I thought I was hardened, I thought I was strong
But you came and you left my life in a shadow
Take my longing, drown it in the sea, it's just a memory of something never meant to be
Not for me
And I will be quiet when I've asked the questions I need
And there's a thousand pages all about you in a darkened room
A thousand questions I have asked you, like a 5-year-old
A hand over my eyes, still I can see it all
Take care, don't mess yourself up
I'm still waiting for our roads to cross
And I won't be angry, I know it'll pass
You came and you left my life in a mess
