Comic Tragedy

from by Paul Tabachneck



A drop of wine
To wash away the pain
As I forget
Each thing you've said today
Oh, sure, we're friends
And that's how I'm sure we'll stay
I still can't look away

And I forget
Just why I didn't ask
I guess you'd say
I wasn't equal to the task
I looked ahead
And I didn't see a "yes"
I'm always second best

Now you're with him it's a comic tragedy
And in your eyes I bet it's better him than me
So strike me blind 'cause I just can't bear to see
That you're with him
And he's not me

A drop of rain
To wash away these tears
I cry in vain
'Cause they won't bring you here
I lost you then
'Cause of what I never said
But even if I did

You'd be with him, in this....

In my heart I know that this is what you need
You've suffered long and hard you've earned your lease from grief
But deep inside you know I still hold the belief
That you belong with me

A drop of sun
To wash away the night
I tossed and turned
Awakened by the light
Of your sweet face
And it's all I really need
Even in my dreams

You're still with him, in this....
