lyrics

Hammerblow (words/music- Justin Lavash)

I’m telling myself it’s gonna be slow
to really know you’re not around
I’m telling myself to forgive myself
but I know I probably let you down

You said I sometimes pushed too far
I know I probably broke your heart
I guess I tried to prove myself
but I proved myself a little much too hard

And I know that’s just the way it is
I know that’s just the way it goes
They say that’s just the way of things
but it hits me harder than a hammer blow

I gathered up the things you loved
And I held them to me like a child
I’ll keep them here; they’re safe with me
They make me think it’s not goodbye

And I shout it out on drunken nights
How dare you have the nerve to leave?
You come back here, coz I’m not done
I’m sick with all this mixed up grief

And I know that’s just the way it is
I know that’s just the way it goes
They say that’s just the way it is
but it hits me harder than a hammer blow

You showed me beauty in the darkest night
In the whistle of the London train
and I think of them when I think of you
but they won’t be the same again

Coz I heard you in the dead of night
reciting lines I did not know
And I wish I could have held your hand
I think you had some place to go
And I wish I could have held your hand
I hope you know you weren’t alone
And I wish I could have said goodbye
It hits me harder than a hammer blow
