lyrics

done


i don't have the energy today
to smile like im going to be ok
i don't the energy no more
to turn shit into pretty metaphors

i don't know what i'm going to do
now that i've seen this side of you
i'm just here frozen and confused
trying to tell myself it isn't true

this isn't real
this couldn't be
you'd never do
that to me

what have you done?
what have you done?
what have you done?

i haven't left the room in days
i have lost the will to pray
i have lost the will to write
i have lost the will to stay

all of the girls that you ran to
they took away a piece of you
they took away a peace of me
still try to tell myself it isn't true

it isn't real
this couldn't be
you'd never do
that to me
what have you done?
what have you done?
what have you done?

i saw you in the horizon
your eyes on mine
your hand in mine
your father and mother smiling
as i take your hand in mine at the altar
i saw our daughters
run to the front door
hold them in your arms in my arms
i saw our garden overgrown with okra
our hearts overwhelmed with hope
i felt myself holding you through tears
heard our music blooming from the earth like sunrise
i saw you in the horizon
your eyes on mine
your hand in mine
and just like that
i am alone
you are gone.
it is done.

what have you done?
what have you done?
what have you done?
