Our mistake was the love we made I didn't deliberate But I never meant you wrong No I didn't mean it

If you've ever lost a loved one I pray for you, I really do If you've ever lost a loved one I pray for
You...

'Cause there s a sad and lonely comfort In the hollow of your eyes But don't you let it take you over
'Cause it will eat you up inside

I heard you're married to a house carpenter And your love will never be mine...

If you're not breathing why am I Left alone in this ship If you're not breathing Why am I left alone?
With a sad and lonely comfort Of the hollow in your eyes But don't you let it take me under 'Cause it
Will eat me up inside

I'm sure you're married to your house carpenter And your love will never be mine ... All the pain and
The way it was All of the shame and the hate, because I was in love with the way it was All that I do I
Do for you

All the pain and the way it was All of the shame and the hate, because I was in love with the way it was
All that I do I do for you If you're not breathing Why am I? left alone in this shit. If you're not
Breathing Why am I left alone?

With a sad and lonely comfort Of the hollow in your eyes But won't let it take me over 'Cause it will
Eat me up inside

I'm sure you're buried with your house carpenter And your face I'll never see no more Your face I'll
Never see no more Your face Your face Your face Your face...

With a sad and lonely comfort Of the hollow in your eyes But I won't let it take me under 'Cause it will
Eat me up inside

Yeah I heard your married to a house carpenter And your love will never me mine No, your love will never
Be mine...
