Last Song for You

Posted July 23, 2001, 4:08 p.m.

I’ve been waiting a good while
For you to make me smile
But you couldn’t, even if you tried
After the hurt, the use, the lies
So this is my last song for you

I offered you the universe
And you cursed me in return
I tried to make you smile
So I gave up after a while
And this is my last song…

Time after time I tried
To make things right with me and you
I don’t believe you ever saw me cry
Or ever saw me try
But this is my last song for you

I know in a twisted way you blame
The remnants of me, just the same
You know the feeling of being used
You know the taste of your own abuse
And this is my last song…

Don’t blame me
Don’t blame me
For your self-inflicted pain
Don’t blame me
Don’t blame me
I know you will, just the same

Time after time I tried
To make things right with me and you
I don’t believe you ever saw me cry
Or ever saw me try
But this is my last song for you

Time after time I tried
I tried and tried and tried
Time after time I tried
To sing my last song for you

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
