Alone At An Altar

about

Cody Gardner wrote the first line as well as most of the chorus. He inspired this song when he started playing something on his guitar and the idea took flight in my head. I thank him for that. This was going to be a part of our project Under The Kitchen Sink, but unfortunately my best friend is moving back to PA. I love you my dude.

lyrics

The one that I have come to know has left me at the altar all alone

So gather up some wooden sticks and nail me to your crucifix
I'll be a martyr hanging on your bathroom wall

So line up every other guy you dared to make feel dead inside
This isn't what I had in mind
When you said i'd be yours and you'd be mine

Who are you?
I'm on to you
I see right through you
I'm on to you now

I'm sending invitations to my dire devastation
How unfortunate it is to fall in love

I blame nobody but myself
There isn't anything left for me here
I don't feel anything at all
If only I could have just one more year
I could sleep peacefully you know
Buried beneath the dirt six feet below
That's where you'll find me

Who are you?
I'm on to you
I see right through you
I'm on to you now
