This song was inspired by a girl that I went out with a couple times. It wasn't for long and I had lost touch with her but when I checked her Facebook profile some time later, I discovered that she had relapsed and died of an overdose. We weren't close by any means but the revelation was enough to get me to stop and reflect on things. I had worried about the music on this one being a little too basic, but I think it turned out well enough.


Child looks to his mother
As he's laid down to sleep
He will never know
The company that she keeps
She goes to her bedroom
Where her lovers creep
Caught in an embrace
That's drilling in deep

I can't say I'd known her
I can't say I'm surprised
Shame and sadness knowing
Once before she'd tried
No love in the smile
That faced her as she died
Jealousy and mocking
Those who were left behind

Endorphins engulf her
Ensnaring their prey
So long to arrive
So quickly they decay
Careful not to wake him
She knows that it can't stay
A new life together
After one last lay


Child dead in his cradle
In the morning light
An evening of crying
With no mother in sight
He had tried to join her
Faded in the night
The snare of her lover
Had kept her held tight
