​Book Ends

This song is by Deliverance and appears on the album Camelot In Smithereens (1995).

Forming the water around me
I was protected from the truth
Innocent cries
A child's closed eyes
How I was to know
A normal life growing up
Taught wrong from right
The does and don'ts
Then the world's sphere got off it's spin
And threw me in a new mold

I'm on the shelf
At 15 I fell in love
And ran away from life
I didn't know how to feel
But what I felt sure felt right
5 years later
I met this girl
And she showed me the light
The plot twists and turns
Leaving one for the other
In order to be saved?

Now I stare at the readings of my life
Page after page
They don't paint a pretty picture of me
Eyes wide
As I pull another book from off the shelf
When does the heartache end
Of a life torn between
These 2 book ends

Life is a tale told by a fool
Signifying nothing
I thought what I did was right
By leaving the past behind
But now all I see is a trail of pain and misery
So I beg you to search your heart
Or might your books read like these

Now they stare at the readings of my life
Page after page
They don't paint a pretty picture of me
Eyes wide
As they pull another book from off the shelf
When does the heartache end
Of a life torn between
These 2 book ends...
