InMe - In Loving Memory lyrics

I took advantage, took you for granted
If this is what you wanted
Well I got what I deserved
The worthless hurt resides inside of this broken man

She was such a graceful creature
She was such a worthy teacher
But how could one unlearn such love
When love is war, is love, is war, my dear?
Spit the blood from my mouth crying
I could not express my undying love
For all you've given me, for all you've taken
A man can change, can change, this man can change

A bloodless kindred that never hindered
The chest has splintered, the bond has over-wintered,
Heart cracked in several places

Listen to the stream so violent
Climbing up the hill so silent
Destitute inside, these veins were slowly closing up
This heart weakened
Chances are you'll never get this
Bled me dry, it's time to forget this
No-one's ever seen me like this
Should I ever fall this deep in love again?

Please forget the year I failed you, I won't hold you anymore
Pitched a tent in sunny Lynton
I wanted it back, I wanted it back, I wanted it back

And now I know where those lips have been, I won't kiss you anymore
It seems these days always doesn't quite cut it
But you know best, yeah, you know best, yeah, you know best

I cannot let it rest in peace, dear
I'll consume myself, it was my only true fear
I hate this fucking aftertaste and I hate it even more without you here
This love was my pain, my hurt, my cancer
And all I wanted was to find an answer
You love and respect someone so deeply and then you lose them for your own
Your own self-odium

For all you've given me
For all you've taken
