Forsake Me

* * *

You came up, once again

Seems you're the topic of

Every single conversation

* * *

"Sandburg, Jim needs your help in this, and I don't want to hear a word out of you, just get Jim back into shape."

* * *

I was the one, once again

Making apologies, all in your defence

Just give him time.

* * *

"Joel, Jim's just strung out man, he's working way to many hours and he's just not himself at the moment, I'm sure once everything's settled down again he'll be sorry."

* * *

It's all right if you fall

You are human after all

But it hurts when you land

On my life

I'm not your Jesus Christ

* * *

"Please, Jim, just talk to me here, I could help you if you would just tell me what your problem is, man."

"You know what my problem is junior? It's you and your nagging, I get it at work and I get it at home and you know what - I'm just about sick of it."

* * *

You show up when you need

Make no apologies

Lay your world upon my shoulders

* * *

"I should have found her in time, God, if only I had been there in time."

* * *

Hey, what a friend you have in me

You give me all your sin

Take my soul and go

* * *

"These senses are worthless, Sandburg! I have no control; I should have found that girl in time!"

* * *

Time after time

* * *

"You're late Sandburg and don't start with one of you obfuscations, we have more important things, a man was just found murdered!"

* * *

It's all right if you fall

You are human after all

But it hurts when you land

On my life

I'm not your Jesus Christ

* * *

"I'm so sorry Sandburg, I didn't know that asking for your help at such a hard time in my life would inconvenience you so much!"

"Jim that's not what I meant, I just have to get these done or I'll be fired, damn it!"

* * *

Save yourself

* * *

"I was a good Detective with out these senses and will be once they're gone."

* * *

Save yourself

* * *

"You're just in the way Sandburg, I've done this plenty of times without you, just go to the U or something."

* * *

Forsake me

* * *

"Chief I need you to leave, this just isn't working anymore, I need room."

* * *

Time after time

* * *

"How can I trust you Blair? Everything you do is for your dissertation. I think it would be best if you started looking for somewhere else to live."

* * *

It's all right if you fall

You are human after all

But it hurts when you land

On my life I'm not your

Jesus Christ

* * *

"Blair I need-"

"I'm sorry Mr. Sandburg no longer works here, may I direct your call to someone else?"
