This is one of my favorite songs by my friend Duhjuanyay, aka Daine Hammerle

You can hear his original version at this link: duhjuanyay.bandcamp.com/track/oh-well


He could tell she spent the last week in pain /
He saw the pills but he chose to look the other way /
Opens his eyes it’s a brand new day / Her hair on his pillowcase pushes the bad stuff away /
Was never good at finding the right words to speak /
And he was strong she was weak from her heart to her feet /
Remembering the times they would play the game of life /
Displayed proudly living loudly with his future wife /

We are what we are oh well
We do what we do so well

Runs his hands through her hair touches her face /
Can’t help but to wonder if the monsters found her sleeping place /
Today’s the day tomorrows too late / And if fate can keep the pace
he and her are gonna run away /
Shakes her once for fun and twice with love /
The third could of passed as abuse to some /
And she’s not waking up / Now he’s not breathing cause /
Regret and realization rips out the guts /

We are what we are oh well
We do what we do so well

We gotta keep the love alive / Look to the sky watch the stars realign / So well we keep it inside / But we’re never gonna let it die…
