Poisoned Well

lyrics

I drank water from a poisoned well
Searched for a kiss to break this spell
but it didn't quench my thirst
And now my situation's getting worse
I drank water from a poisoned well

Close my eyes and but can't keep out the light
Tried to speak but my throat was tight
I've kept secrets that I'll never tell
could it be my silence only hurt myself
Close my eyes and but can't keep out the light

where did it all go wrong
when did it get so too late
why have I been left alone
Abandoned to this fate ?

I hear footsteps in the hall
shadows creep across the wall
grip the handle on the door
I'm afraid I might find what I'm looking for
I hear footsteps in the hall

She won't say what she saw in me
I tried to warn her but she set it free
the cage I built fell apart
Now It's all buried in the yard
She won't say what she saw in me

where did it all go wrong
when did it get so too late
what did I do to be left alone
Abandoned to this fate ?

I can't trust these streets anymore
Where we once were home, safe and warm
Now what have you done to all my friends
I just can't believe this is how it all ends
I can't trust these streets anymore

I drank water from a poisoned well
I drank water from a poisoned well
