I wrote this back on 10/2/2008.

Obviously, I had some things I was working through during this period, a lot of things.
The recent passing of someone brought this song back to mind as well as the feelings from way back then, though with an aged perspective that this pain helped build. I want anyone who might be listening to understand that I am not posting this out of some spiteful intent, but rather, this was part of my experience, my feelings, and the portion of my life that it effected. I am entitled to my feelings, thoughts and experience and to grieve in my own way. We are creatures of complexity and the twists we take and lessons we learn are no less complex. Our existence is both tragic and beautiful.

Thank you for listening.

Instrumentation:

Me- Rainsong COWS 1100 carbon fiber guitar
My friend- Viol da gamba
Me- Mandolin
Me- vocals

Lyrics:

What we once had was beautiful
But now that it's gone I see only dust
You know when I think of all the things I wanted to say
And then when I think of all the games you used to play

But what ever happened to us?
Things seemed so cold toward the end
It seemed that you'd changed and that something wasn't the same
It seemed that I had grown out of you some way

You know some nights, I still miss your touch
But all the things you said, well, they hurt so much
And I can't say when I'm gonna be ok
There's a hole in my heart and it's shaped like you

And now what we have isn't beautiful
I look at your face and I only hurt
And I feel so sad, hoped it would never get this bad
I wanted to be good to you but, you could have helped too

I cried every night for a week
They told me you were doing fine
Well that's great for you
But that's not so great for me.
I can't help but think that you never felt that much for me

You know some nights, I still miss your touch
But all the things you did, well, they hurt so much
And I can't say when I'm gonna be ok
There's a hole in my heart and it's shaped like you
