Fallout (The Mayfield Four)

I done it to myself once again Breakin' off a piece for everyone I gave in good faith, in you I believed But these efforts to connect just segregate it given time And walls grow taller not with bricks and mortar But with distance and indifference And you trust like children and you break like glass Won't you please put me back together? Just for a minute you were my best friend What I gave you took away, give it back Swimmin' in a sea of nameless faces Good natured boy wants the world to be his friend Is that the rock tied around his ankle That will drag him down and drown him in the end He needs a hand to hold, he needs a hand Do you have one to lend? And past to present and is all he seems to know Understand that's the reason he's afraid to give again Just for a minute you were my best friend What I gave you took away, took away, took away, now It just bleeds into one anymore It's so sad but common throw this blanket over all Is that the state of relations that I made for myself Cause it's cake and doubt and I won't trust again And the fallout takes its toll The fallout takes its toll on me and on you When it settles will we ever be the same? Time heals a broken heart but the scars they never go away Just for a minute you were my best friend Just for a minute you were my best friend What I gave you took away, took away, took away
