​34 Winters

This song is by The Badlees and appears on the album Up There Down Here (1999).

An end
A suburban catastrophe
It's time to start mourning the death
Of a friend
Standing in front of me
And I can't stop the hatred that wells
Up inside
As I look for a glimmer in his vacant
And I can't do a damn thing 'cause I
Can't feel a damn thing
With a hole in my heart that's a thousand
Miles wide
Cause the smile has left his face
The portrait of happiness he can't retrace
Gone is the love that once lived there
It's cold as a stone
At late I performed with trembling hands
But the parts don't seem to fit
And these 34 winters haven't left him as cold
As this one conversation did
And I don't understand, eyes open wide
How you can see love so clearly but it still
Leaves you blind
And I can't do a damn thing 'cause I can't
Say a damn thing
And I can't stop this woman from pushing him
Life as we know it has come to an end
Nothing can be the same
