Barnacle Bill: Music

For the Best

(Klinger)
You went into my heart
And you never left a mark
And you put yourself into my lonely life
How could I have known
I could never have you alone
It didn’t even matter that I could call you my wife

We couldn’t find a way to say that we
That we could never leave
We only hurt what we both loved
Whatever we believed

In another life in another time
In the future or the past
We’re bound together forged by holy fire
In which we’re cast
And I want you to know
I don’t love you any less
Since you’ve been gone
And that I finally know
It’s for the best

If I open my heart again
To a lover or a long lost friend
They can see you footprints and your fingerprints
But the evidence is in
And the jury never wins
And the verdict is guilty of breaking and entering in

We couldn’t find a way to say that we
That we could never leave
We only hurt what we both loved
Whatever we believed

In another life in another time
In the future or the past
We’re bound together forged by holy fire
In which we’re cast
You left me long ago
I was only half here most of the time
And I want you to know
I don’t love you any less
Since you’ve been gone
And that I finally know
It’s for the best
It’s for the best
It’s for the best
