​Grapefruit

This song is by Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties and appears on the album We Don't Have Each Other (2014).

Hey, Holy Ghost, why'd you leave me? Where'd you go?
I know we ain't spoke in so long, but I've gotta know, if I'm alone.
If I start drinking, I'm gonna be the town drunk.
You always said I should lighten up,
I'm gonna lighten up. I'm gonna lighten up.

So long. I'm sorry that I wasn't who you want.
If I can't make you happy, I'm no good for anyone.
So long. I'm sorry that I wasn't who you you'd want.
If I can't make you love me...

I shut you out,
After the funeral, mired in doubt.
You thought a family would help.
I was struggling. You could tell.
When we got the news,
That you were pregnant,
We painted a room,
Pink and orange like a grapefruit.
I know how bad you wanted this too.
I know it killed you.

In all my dreams, I'm in the house that I grew up in.
I'm trying to be half the man I know my dad is, or was.
I see me as a father looking over a daughter,
Who grew up to be just like you
And now, that's just a thread I can't hold onto.
It's just an open wound.

So long. I'm sorry that I wasn't who you want.
If I can't make you happy, I'm no good for anyone.
So long. I'm sorry that I wasn't who you'd want.
If I can't make you love me...

Hey, Holy Ghost,
Why'd you leave me? Where'd you go?
Right when I fucking need you,
I'm all alone. I'm all alone.

So, I'll start drinking.
Yeah, I'll be the town drunk.
I'll be a burden on everyone.
