Irish singer/songwriter Marc Carroll - "Against My Will", from his 2009 album "Dust Of Rumour"
I do not own this song - All rights reserved for Marc Carroll.
I silently stared as far as I could see
In her eyes I was a stranger from the past
And our parting it felt like an eternity
And every little muttered word felt like the last.
But tell her no, it isn't so, tell her no no no
And that I have gone away against my will
Until I return, keep her safe from harm
But most of all, let her know I love her still.
When I turned to the west I felt instantly alone
Kicked the mud off of my boots and slept for days
No words could express the foolishness I'd shown
And that's the burden and the price that I must pay.
With my heartbeat booming in my head as I went walking
To ease the hurt and pain of memory
But as sure as I am, it will end where it began
Under the gaze of her reflection by the sea.
