Why’d I lose it like this?
My sorry ass on this bench of steel,
damned days, tough nights, alone, too real.
That flash, I feel no pulse, no breath
how could I, your man, have caused your death?
Eyes focused, cracked cee-ment skies above,
I ‘fess this sin to you, my love.
Still I ain’t quite sorry for this sin,
your cancer, baby, was doin’ us in.
Will these bars of steel always be so cold and real?
