Theory of a Deadman

By the Way

Verse 1

A note by the door
Simply explains
It's all that remains
It's no wonder why
I have not slept in days
 
The dust on the floor
Piled up from the years
All those scars and souvenirs
Now that you're gone
It's easy to see
 
^[But so hard to believe]

Chorus

^[By the way]
^[You left without saying]
^[Goodbye to me]
 
Now that you're ^[gone away]
^[All I can think about is]
^[You and me, you and me]

Verse 2

It's not like before
You left nothing here
It's all disappeared
It hurts me to see
That we've been a lie
 
^[Would it have hurt you to try?]

Chorus

^[By the way]
^[You left without saying]
^[Goodbye to me]
 
Now that you're ^[gone away]
^[All I can think about is]
^[You and me, you and me]

Bridge

It's sad to say that
This pain is killing me inside
But it's time to say
That this pain is ^[keeping me alive]
 
Twisting and turning
It rips through my ^[heart]
It's been ^[tearing me apart]

Chorus

^[By the way]
^[You left without saying]
^[Goodbye to me]
 
Now that you're ^[gone away]
^[All I can think about is]
^[You and me, you and me]

Outro

[Yay-yeah]
^[All i think about now is]
^[You and me, you and me]
 
[Yeay-yeah]
^[All i think about now is]
^[You and me, you and me]
 
[Yeah-heah]
 
By the way
By the way
^[By the way]
