Why Feel When You Can Pay

Felt the most wonderful sadness today
Got taken there by David Grey
A song that made me remember
A lost heart and a cold December

Thought she'd stick around
Instead she beat it out of town
Left me hanging in the wind
Wanting to go back to sin

Easier that way they say
Why feel when you can pay
Run from the light
Stop putting up a fight

Go to the edge of the river
And let that cold water deliver
The solution you've avoided for so long
The one that will make those feelings gone

Sat on edge staring out for a while
Until the night reduced me to a scared child
Fell asleep under a dying oak tree
And decided better that tree than me
