On the Cusp

Standard

ON THE CUSP

Sitting on the fence in Arkansas
On the cusp of a collapse of a marriage
With no valid reasons not to fall apart
I have no idea where I’ll go from here
Decisions will find their own way
Whether I want them to or not

What the hell was I thinking
Rode the wave now I’m sinking in the deep
How the hell did we get here
If there weren’t children involved
This would be easier

We Gathered with my family for the week
You must feel so alone
If they only knew what was going on
On some strange level I appreciate
Your silence When there’s no incentive
Not to scream your guts out

What the hell were we thinking
Rode the wave now we’re sinking in the deep
How the hell did we get here
Maybe this would be easier
If one foot wasn’t out the door

A year ago we were lying in bed
Picking out names for a baby
When she came I remember feeling so happy
I nearly collapsed when her head came out
From sleep deprivation
At least that’s the excuse I’m going with

What the hell are we doing
When did we start losin’ touch of love
How the hell did this happen
When did you decide you weren’t coming home
When did I decide to do the same

Sitting on the fence in Arkansas
On the cusp of a collapse of a marriage
