In Another Room

In another room just out of my sight
Words we used to say become so slight
Will they disappoint?
And I know you won't return my kiss
Did I not love you quite like this
In another room

In another room where I'm obliged to wait
'Til I become the man you barely tolerate
And the blood red pub
And it makes me drunk at the temple door
Did I not love you anymore
In another room

In another room now I feel vacant
I can't get used to it just yet
In another room you're crying and shaking
Cursing the very day we met

In another room where we were before
Now you take your boy and you close the door
In another room he's kissing you so hard
The glass that's in his hand it shatters into shards
Splinters in his palm
And the blood will run down in his cuff
Did I not love you quite enough
In another room just out of my sight
In another room, goodbye
Good night.
