GETTING FURTHER BEHIND
May 30, 2013

This is a song that I wrote about the falseness of a relationship gone sour, before the break-up is public, where you are still trying to put on the airs of compatibility. The romantic sunsets go so slowly compared to how when you were newly in love and you could never seem to have enough time together. One of my goals is to have someone set this to music...



Could you see us on the porchswing

or a thousand miles apart

Setting up a tea set, tasty treats upon the cart

sitting pretty, sitting cozy

Life is hard and never rosy

But you played the martyr card

and got further behind





Twisted from the first intent

Excelling at the acting part

another television night, dinner on the cart

Sitting lonely, sitting only

to let the night pass without feeling

Getting further behind





Doesn't it go slowly

this falsely led life of ours

Doesn't the sun take too long to fade

Why won't the daylight come ande let this night

go into the record books

Do you really have to ask why?





Time marches slowly on

time marches slowly on

time..it marches....on





You were brilliant tonight

When we met the neighbors at the supermart

another trophy for your cart

Sitting lovely, sitting solely

To prove the unprovable wholly

Getting further behind





Time marches slowly on

time marches slowly on

time...it marches....on





Doesn't it go slowly

this falsely led life of ours

Doesn't the sun take too long to fade

Why won't the daylight come and let this night

Fade gently into the recordbooks

Do you really have to ask why

do you really have to ask why

do you really have to ask?
