Such As It Is
~music and lyrics by Skye Pixton

these lonely nights Imust be guarded by angels
As I write across the pages of my personal history
and I hold on tight, so I can ride out the rest of
the storm it's the best of the morning, for one like me

And such as it is, there's a million raging holes
In my heart that I've never sung, but I know
And such as it is there are words I've never spoken, hearts I've never broken
And all I'm left with is a token of you
And such as it is I been hangin' on as if you were never gone

I don't believe you would have loved me forever
But we could have stayed here together until at least sometime next week
And now it seems to me that you were biding the moments
That you were riding the romance that I brought to the table for free

And such as it is, there's a million raging holes
In my heart that I've never sung, but I know
And such as it is there are words I've never spoken, hearts I've never broken
And all I'm left with is a token of you
And such as it is I been hangin' on as if you were never gone

I know what you'd say: you'd say to move on my darling
that this is too long for heartache to be a defining function of me
And by the way, I know that you wouldn't notice
but baby, I already know this, and I choose my heart's hard way

And such as it is, there's a million raging holes
In my heart that I've never sung, but I know
And such as it is there are words I've never spoken, hearts I've never broken
And all I'm left with is a token of you
And such as it is I been hangin' on as if you were never gone
