Behind Closed Doors

about

This is the soundtrack from a live video of a song I wrote about the effects of alcohol/substance abuse. This isn't in terms of me personally but I've seen it happen and the effects it has on other people. Hope you enjoy.

lyrics

Maybe I would say to you
Everything I wanted to
But you're halfway out the door
I wish that I could say to you
Everything I wanted to
You don't listen anymore
We haven't spoken since, that envelope I found untorn
I wasn't proud of what I saw
We haven't spoken since that letter that I found on the floor
I don't read it through anymore

Now everything has changed
Remember when I wanted you, I needed you
I knew that it would make me pay
I thought that we could make it through 'cause you could choose
I didn't wanna turn away
Even though I needed to, I needed you more
I needed you more

Walking out to school each day
Helped me take my mind away
From destruction I called my own
You called me a waste of time
I offered up this heart of mine
When you told me you felt alone.
Maybe you were right, the times you told me I should leave
I had faith in you wanting what was the best for me
Maybe you were right, you shouted at me, face pasty-white
I learned to recognise you from the state of your eyes.

Now everything has changed
Remember when I wanted you, I needed you
I knew that it would make me pay
I thought that we could make it through 'cause you could choose
I didn't wanna turn away
Even though I needed to, I needed you more
I needed you more

You got a substance heart
A substance mind
It tears you apart, it takes all your time
You got a substance heart
An infected mind
It tears me apart, to watch you turn to white
To watch you turn to white

It was no fault of mine.

Things have changed
Remember when I wanted you, I needed you
I knew that it would make me pay
I thought that we could make it through when you could choose
I didn't wanna turn away
Even though I needed to, I needed you more

I needed you more.
