i saw the light
i closed my eyes
i didn't want to see the truth
i didn't want to know the truth
about me

jack and i
we were friends
for as long as i can think
since i had my very first drink
thought he'd be there till the end
until he broke my heart
& left me for dead
my friend

it's been awhile
since he's been gone
and my life
has moved along
but lonliness always brings
that scary song that jack used to sing
and the song brings the fear
that jack is always near
my soul

i'll sing and sing
and sing it again
and let the blues come
stumbling in
i didn't ever want the pain
but it's mine just the same
i just hope that i finish the game
before my mind goes completely
