Didn’t Feel It Coming

Didn’t Feel It Coming
(Flannery)

Doctor said “son it’s all in your head”
he gave me some pills and sent me to bed
so I dreamt of you all night and day
slept like a baby with no place to stay
it ain’t much fun being this way
didn’t feel it coming but that’s ok

This place hurts down to the bone
non-stop sticks and one big stone
your hide gets tough but your insides shake
end up giving what you should take
bending me until I break
I didn’t feel it coming for no one’s sake

Warning signs this heart of mine
keeps giving out all the time
first it beats right through my chest
then is disappears like all the rest

I’ll grow up when I get old
and buy the lies that you told
I’ll turn bitter I’ll turn mean
on the day that I turn 18
like nothing that you’ve ever seen
didn’t feel it coming this in between

Warning signs this heart of mine
keeps giving out all the time
first it beats right through my chest
then is disappears like all the rest
