It's Been A While
Staind
And it's been a while
since I could hold my head up high
and it's been a while since I first saw you
and it's been a while
since I could stand on my own two feet again
and it's been a while since I could call you
and everything I can remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
the consequences that are rendered
I stretch myself beyond my means
and it's been a while
since I couldn?t say that I wasn?t addicted
and it's been a while
since I couldn?t say I love myself as well
and it's been a while
since I?ve gone and fucked things up
just like I always do
and it's been a while
but all that shit seems to disappear
when I?m with you
and everything I can remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
the consequences that I've rendered
have gone and fucked things up again
why must I feel this way
just make this go away
just one more peaceful day
and it's been a while
since I could look at myself straight
and it's been a while since I said I?m sorry
and it's been a while
since I?ve seen the way the candles light your face
and it's been a while but I can still remember just the way you taste
and everything I can remember
as fucked up as it all may seem
I know it's me
I cannot blame this on my father
he did the best he could for me
and it's been a while
since I could hold my head up high
and it's been a while since I said I?m sorry
