The Past Doesn't Bother Her

by Chris Rodriguez   Nov 22, 2007

She can't get herself asleep
The blood on her hands won't wash away
And it's those hard memories she fights to keep
She's transparent
and so hardened
The miles on the road won't keep the dawn from coming

Your dad left you for the circus
He was scared like me
And didn't know where to go
But you should've known I would never leave you
But you left me

She's beautiful and departed
Smiles when life's got her down on her knees
Because she has nothing better to do

The faces in her mind are little cards
That she can't afford to lose
But somehow she always manages to burn them away
The past doesn't bother her she says...
I think it's something else
Sixteen years and all that you'll give yourself is loneliness

So why do you leave stories unfinished?
My Greek blooded girl
Why did you leave when you knew I would protect you?
You keep moving when the circus stops into town

She's the girl that used to love me
But she isn't here
She's the girl that used to tell me
I could stay here
But she isn't here
