A million

Dug this one out of somewhere in the middle of the file. Not quite the back, but definitely not new.

A Million Times Before by me

Took you out of my wallet
And just looked at you
Like a million times before,
A million times before.

Slipped you back in my pocket
And then walked away
Like a million times before,
But I don't cry anymore.

You know I used to
It all used to flood out.
I guess I got used to it,
The flood's become a drought.

But I'm not sure which one hurts more.
Maybe I'll be able to tell
Which one is the lesser hell
When I've lived it
Like a million times before.

There are days when a tear falls
But never the same
As a million times before
When they all fell to the floor.

There are times when my skin crawls
Picturing your face
With the one that you adore
'Cause it used to be me before -

Before the sun rose
And chased the moonlight out.
Back when feelings rose from me,
Now I think I'm all cried out.

But I'm not sure which one hurts more.
Maybe I'll be able to tell
Which one is the lesser hell
When I've lived it
Like a million times before.

A million times from now,
Will I have this figured out?
Will I finally be over
Knowing that it's over
And knowing that I'm over
You?

'Cause right now
I'm not sure which one hurts more.
Maybe I'll be able to tell
Which one is the lesser hell
When I've lived it
Like a million times before.
A million times before
A million times before.
