12 Feet
Christopher Doutt

I swear to god, I didn't see it coming
Everything seemed a-OK to me
So when you dropped that bomb on my front doorstep
I was surprised it could ever come to be

A decade and another five years
and then you add two more
Well, sprinkle in another half, but I still wanted more
Forever love you promised
and your word was always gold
but I didn't do my part, and now you've pushed me through that door

Better bury me 12 feet under
Dig it twice as deep for me
Bury me 12 feet under to escape the memory
of how I failed and how you sailed away
for eternity

Now my tunnel vision all went black again
and that candle in my kitchen just burned out because I sinned
I'm sorry that I caused you so much pain
I wish I had another chance 'cause I'm the one to blame

Better bury me 12 feet under
Dig it twice as deep for me
Bury me 12 feet under to escape the memory
of how I failed and how you sailed away
for eternity

I guess we're back to all them years ago
Back to that last goodbye and all the pain I've come to know
I hope that you will have a happy life
but I wish I hadn't lost the chance to have you for my wife

Better bury me 12 feet under
Dig it twice as deep for me
Bury me 12 feet under to escape the memory
of how I failed and how you sailed away
for eternity

Better bury me 12 feet under
Dig it twice as deep for me
Bury me 12 feet under to escape the memory
of how I failed and how you sailed away
for eternity

Of how I failed and how you sailed away
