Benjamin

Hello there,
Several people have asked that I post the lyrics to the song Benjamin, from the album “Waking Up the Ruins”. For those that care here they are and sorry for the delay. ;)
Have a beautiful day!

Benjamin, you went away
Benjamin, I never thought you’d stay
Cause you played your guitar like you didn’t love me
You held my hand like it wasn’t there
When you looked at me you were starin’ above me
I always knew it wasn’t there
Benjamin, you were never mine
Benjamin, it wasn’t wasted time
It’s water now under the bridge
Elementary, it all makes sense
How could I resent you, you were young
High school love was just for fun
With my heart now I easily see
Ben your love how it brings me ease

But you who are, yeah you know your name
Caught me off guard, said you felt the same
I took your word and now I’m scarred
A chance I took with love in your arms
Don’t always know what’s goin’ on
I can’t pretend to be so strong
I’m older now and what have I to show
A broken heart and where can I go
May never understand how it works
Perhaps one day it won’t hurt

You my after-youth heartache
I loved you with everything at stake
Benjamin, at least you told me straight
Benji Boy, you didn’t play with fate

Benjamin, I liked your name
Benjamin, you were a pretty face
But I found love after you
I found love after you
I knew deep down you weren’t for me
Benjamin, we knew it couldn’t be

Benjamin, ‘least losing you made sense
