Theory of a Deadman

Santa Monica

Verse 1

She fills my bed with gasoline
You think I wouldn't notice
Her mind's made up, the love is gone
I think someone's trying to show us a sign
 
That even if we thought it would last
The moment would pass
My bones will break and my heart won't give
Oh, it hurts to live

Chorus

And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
And I remember the day you told me it's over

Verse 2

It hurts to breathe
Well every time that you're not next to me
Her mind's made up, the girl is gone
And now I'm forced to see
 
Well, I think I'm on my way
Oh, it hurts to live today
Oh and she says
"Don't you wish you were dead like me?"

Chorus

And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
And I remember the day you told me it's over

Bridge

I wanted more than this
I needed more than this
I deserve more than this
But it just won't stop
It just won't go away
 
I needed more than this
I wanted more than this
I asked for more than this
But it just won't stop
It just won't go away

Chorus

And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
And I remember the time when you left it all behind
And I remember the day you told me it's over
 
Backings (layered)

4 x [She left for Santa Monica]
 
And I remember the day when you left for Santa Monica
You left me to remain with all your excuses for everything
 
And I remember the time when you left for Santa Monica
Yeah, I remember the day you told me it's over
