It's Been Awhile

Lyricist: Staind    Composer: Staind

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