It's Been Awhile Lyrics
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't remember
As f*cked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've stretched myself beyond my means

It's been awhile
Since I can say that I wasn't addicted
And it's been a while since I can say I love myself as well and
And it's been a while since I've gone and f*cked 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't remember
As f*cked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I've rendered
I've gone and f*cked 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't remember
As f*cked up as it all may seem to be
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
