Hall Stars - The Game

from Reunion Tour by the garages



you thought the day she let you go and run away
would be the last you'd feel the pain
and all your trauma would be buried and forgotten
and replaced with all that makes up
an emotionally stable person
and you'd live and laugh and love again
and finally grow up again

you thought the day she let you leave and find a way
to make dead sure you'd never let yourself
be shackled down and hurt by way of
conscience and regret
you thought that day would be the
start of a new age for your wellbeing
opportunity for change
a brand new life without the pain

suddenly free you found yourself seeking out meaning
and exploring what it means to
feel a feeling that's your own and not a scar you got when
on your own you stood before a hopeless game, an angry beam
of fire that would cleanse you of
your sins, your hopes, your memories and dreams

suddenly free you found yourself in lack of meaning
as you left her even years could not have healed the
wounds she left, the creeping fear you tried to
bury deep beneath your calm exterior but inside you knew that
time will pass and scars will fade
but you will never learn to live without the

creeping death around your wrists
a symphony of hits that missed
without the hurt it's not the same
you've never healed, you need the game
