ryan montbleau LYRICS 

DRAW THE LINE

I lost the right to know you when I kept you standing by

I felt that I would know you forever, whether or not mine

Forever’s never that far away when you’re on the south side of 23

And the good things in your life you’re sure will be there for all time  Well, forever never rendered and it ended on the day

It ended on the day you drew the line

 

Draw the line

Push it away

Make pretend the time you knew me was a drunken night you threw away

Not years of your young life

Never two kids in love and alive

Never a sacred place where you could hang your mind

And I’ve been known from time to time, but I draw the line

 

I lost my will to live (to live!) for a little while

I thought that I could not go on without that little fairy dust number on my dial

And of course, the digits still remained

But, to me the greatest pain was hearing how severely

How severely your voice had changed

From hot to cold, from life to death

In a single breath and it made me look at my wrist and maybe

Wonder if I could draw a line

 

No, no, no, draw the line

Push it away

Make pretend the time you knew me was a fairy tale from yesterday  Long gone, and not real life, only two kids in love and a lie

Never a sacred place where I should hang my mind

And I’ve been known from time to time but I draw the line

 

And if I saw you in the moonlight

And if those eyes were still the same

I’d be so quick to say I’m sorry

For ever causing you pain

And if I found myself so lucky

To be standing by your side

I’d be so quick to tell you all I’ve learned

Since we said

Since you said goodbye

 

I’ve learned that little made up sorrows cancel out tomorrow’s blessings

Distress my confidence, mess up my mind

Little made up pleasures build a world I cannot measure up to

When I’ve got to see the world through closed eyes

Ignoring the possibilities, thinking only of I and mine and me

Trusting only what wanted to see inside

Little made up sorrows cancel out tomorrow’s blessings

I’ve done my time and I draw the line

 

I draw the line

Push it away

Make pretend the time you knew me was a drunken night in Winnipeg

Not years of your young life

Never two kids in love and alive

Never a sacred place where you could hang your mind

And I’ve been known from time to time

I’ve been known from time to time

But I draw the line

I draw the line
