I go to the table, your pictures are on the front 
I looked so much younger then, 
Somehow so much different 
I look in the mirror

I want to spit on my face 
I hate these things I've become 
I don't deserve to take up this space 
That I live in

Dark rings around my eyes 
Bruises on my bones 
I'm tired of these lies that drip from my mouth 
Like habitual beads from a broken string of once was love

I go to the drawer 
I pull out the gun 
In my hands it's heavy and cold 
It feels like something I was damned to hold

Damn you, man, and your sweet kisses 
Damn your hairs in the sink 
Damn the pool and all the trash it collected 
The leaves only looked like blondes and brunettes to me

Damn my suspicion and damn my sight 
Damn you and your twisted ways 
Damn my courage for being so gone so much 
Damn love because it stayed

I lift the gun to my face 
I'm gonna shoot myself in the eyes 
The daisies are on the table 
That you gave me yesterday 
But yesterday I was willing to compromise

I hear the key and you open the door 
Billy runs to greet you 
Billy won't hurt anymore 
The sun shines in the window 
Where the pictures and the daisies lay 
This chaos can't continue 
I never liked daisies anyway

I hear your footsteps 
Coming down the stairs 
You reach the bottom with an apology in your hand 
I'm standing there

Funny, you have that same look in your eyes 
As all those times I had in mine 
I pull the trigger 
The daisies apologize for the last time

Billy runs down the stairs 
I am numb 
I call the police 
Tell them what I've done

I go to the table 
Where the pictures and the daisies lay 
I looked so much younger then 
Somehow, so much different 
And the sun shines through the window

Where the pictures and the daisies lay 
Where the daisies lay 
Where the daisies lay 
Oh well, never liked daisies anyway

Damn the Daisies
