about

This is a song about loss and the many strange ways it can affect you.

lyrics

Oh since you’ve gone, I’m running wild.
Oh since you’ve gone, I’m wasting time.

I’m making all my sad excuses
Blaming all the gods and zeuses
I’m breaking every resolution that I make.
I'm milking every smile and kindness
Claiming sanctuary in the mindless
I’m shirking all of my commitments, what a fake.

Oh since you’ve gone, I’m running wild.
Oh since you’ve gone, I’m wasting my life.

You’d be so sick of my excesses
You’d roll your eyes at my digresses
You’d say that I was so much more than I’ve become.
Could it be I’m just a reckless, feckless sham without you here?
Could it be that without you, I’m no one.

Oh since you’ve gone, I’m running from my life.
Oh since you’ve gone, I’m running for my life.

They all say that I’m grieving
But I’m just angry at you leaving
I want the world to scream out with my pain.
Sure I could drag myself together
Play like its sunny weather
But if I do what of you would remain?

Oh since you’ve gone, I’m running wild
Oh since you’ve gone, I’m wasting time
Oh since you died,
I'm running wild.
