i did it all for you
(Michael Timmins)

(I did it all for you)

She took his dentures from his mouth and placed them in her own.
Took a shovel from the shed and then dragged him from their home.
(I did it all for you.)
Left a note tacked to the door, "Paid in full" is what it said.
High above I look below and watch her slowly go.
River, like magnesium, burns.
(I did it all for you)

He stuck his fingers in their backs to count the holes he bore.
Douse them all in kerosene and moved to bolt the door.
(I did it all for you)
Called his Dad and said goodbye as his lit match hit the floor.
High above I look below and watch them slowly go.
River, like magnesium, burns.
(I did it all for you)

Set his guilt before his rage, set it like a wall,
to protect what he once knew as love,
but which he never knew at all,
River, like magnesium, burns.

(I did it all for you)
(I did it all for you)
