I was a fighter

from Art Like War by Richard Garvey

lyrics

I was a fighter.
But I think I've lost.
Sight of whats right and good
Now I'm feeling the cost
Of closing my eyes
And shrugging it off
Oh I feel so lost.

Under the surface
I'm barely breathing.
Will I drown in this shell of a man you believe in
Shame up to my neck
Hell on my mind
Oh what have I done

Say you'll forget me
after I'm gone.
Say you'll forgive
All I've got wrong
Tell me our love
Was un-true all along
Oh forget me I'm gone

I'll never call you
never curse your name
never walk these streets where we became
stars of the nights sky we darkened the flame
Oh I'll never curse your name

I was a fighter.
But I think I've lost.
Sight of whats right and good
Now I'm feeling the cost
Of closing my eyes
And shrugging it off
Oh I feel so lost.
