The Fifth Day

The hours alone
On the fifth day since you’ve gone
This broken glass, this early morn

I rub my eyes in the haze
I’m not sleeping anyway
I watch the sun rise
on the city where I was born

I could call you now
It wouldn’t matter what I say
Words just aren’t enough

I hear our song, press repeat
Smell your perfume on the sheets
You always said, “Boy, you’re not so tough”

And only now can I say
No matter how I shake and shake
It’s these things that make you a man

Your frozen mind begins to thaw
You think my God my God my God
Where was it I began?

I wish you well, that’s what I’d say
If you asked me in the light of day
But these nights are like dream I can’t shake

There’s your hair and there’s your head
There’s your empty place on the bed
I wish I could scream myself awake

But I won’t go back to what I was
I know now that you are lost
It’s your choices that make you a man

Your frozen mind begins to thaw
You think my God my God my God
Where was it I began?
