David Wilcox – Guilty Either Way lyrics

From Underneath

I'm tired of all the jagged edges
That cut me every time you fall
And the pieces of your life come down around you.
And I'm tired of the worried voices
Crying when they call
Just 'cause I'll know where to look
When no one's found you.
You're just sailing right along,
That's what you're thinking.
I've been bailing you out so long,
You don't even know you're sinking.
I'm guilty. Guilty either way.

Wrong to try to fix you, and wrong to turn away.
I'm guilty, guilty either way.

I don't want to be the one to get that call
Some early morning
When they find you dead of more than you can take.
I don't want to be the one
To dry your children's tears of mourning
And try to find some lie to cover your mistake.
If I'm always here to catch you,
Then you're only going to fall again,
But if you fall right through the bottom,
Then I'm always going to feel the blame.
