The Future Hangs (Cuff the Duke)

Conveniently I wait avoid these feelings and other mistakes If only I were taller I'd see past the clutter and plan an escape I've hollowed out my heart so emotions can echo and drift apart But they haunt me in my sleep a constant pounding that wants to speak These infectious little lies are barely breathing they're barely alive So I swallow my pride embrace these moments that seem contrived It's only been eight weeks since I conceded my defeat But it lingers like a scar that won't allow me to retreat My dear friend no longer by my side If only you could see what you meant to me I have to bridge this gap somehow The past is far too close and the future hangs in my face These abbreviated thoughts won't affect you in the end 'Cause the sun's about to set on this moment and on this trend My dear friend no longer by my side If only you could see what you meant to me I have to bridge this gap somehow The past is far too close and the future hangs in our face patiently
