With or Without You: Matt Duchene

See the pain set in your eyes
See the knee twist at your side
We wait for you

Drought of goals and drop in rank
On a bed of nails you make us wait
And we wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through this stretch our offense bores
They give it all but we need more
And we're waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
We can't win
With or without you

And you give the game away
And you give the game away
And you give
And you give
And you give our hopes away

The score is tied
Your body bruised, he's got us with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give the game away
And you give the game away
And you give
And you give
And you give lottery picks away

With or without you
With or without you
We can't win
With or without you.

The Avs have stumbled to a 6-8-1 record without their top player. They've been outscored 38-31 over that stretch, and have only won 2 games in which they've scored less than 3 goals. They have won EVERY game in which they score 3 goals or more. Get well soon Dutchy.

Love always,

MHH
