Eddie From Ohio



I'm the last one standing so this must be my fault
And you're curled up on the sofa, frozen with regret
It's true one man's accident is another man's assault
But I haven't figured out which one this is yet

But I'm tired of living in a state of fear
I'm gonna run you out of here one day
Talk is cheaper than it's been in years
So I think there's only one thing left to say


It was fire in my chest from the moment that we met
You were all style and grace and full of southern charm
Still I wish that I didn't know now what I didn't know then
When I was young and starry-eyed, curled around your arm


So I'll keep standing by you, no matter what the cost
The truth is that loneliness beats being alone
But I fear along the way something scared has been lost
And I fear that my weakness is all I'll ever own
