My Punishment For Fighting
The Rosebuds

My Punishment For Fighting

The street lights flicker the bright ideal
The breath of lovers shout like clicking heels
The kids are running, a boundlessness I once knew
A bigger man would have to fall if guilt drained all his youth

Follow the river past the city gate
Near the county access is where I'll wait
And it's just a nightmare 'cause I'll never again see you
A bigger man would surely fall if he lost his love too

I could never be all you need me to
My punishment is living without you
I could never leave and come to comfort you
My guilt is not your burden now that you know it's true

Dress yourself in courage when you go down there
Tell the county courthouse just where I'll be
And don't ever look back, run as far as you can go
'Cause I'll never be able to love anymore

I could never be all you need me to
My punishment is living without you
I could never leave and come back home to you
Don't suffer for my fighting, don't sacrifice your view
I could never leave and come to comfort you
My punishment is living without you

I could never give a simple life to you
Don't suffer for my fighting, don't sacrifice your own view
