It’s been a while (Staind)


It’s been a while since I could
Hold my head up high
And it’s been a while since I first saw you
And it’s been a while since I could stand
On my own two feet again and it’s been a while
Since I could call you
And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that are rendered
I stretched myself beyond my means
And it’s been a while since I could say…
That I wasn’t addicted, and
It’s been a while
Since I could say I love myself as well, and
It’s been a while
Since I’ve gone and fucked things up
Just like I always do!
And it’s been a while
But all that shit seems to disappear
When I’m with you!
And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve gone and fucked things up again, yeah…
Why must I feel this way…?
Just make this go away…
Just one more peaceful day…!
And it’s been a while since I could…
look at myself straight
And it’s been a while since I said I’m sorry
And it’s been a while
Since I’ve seen the way
The candles light your face
And it’s been a while
But I can still remember
Just the way you taste
And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem…
To be, I know it’s me!
I cannot blame this on my father
He did the best he could for me
And it’s been a while since I could…
Hold my head up high
And it’s been a while
Since I said I’m sorry
