When I let you go, I cursed myself with empty hands. Strong enough to watch you walk, but not enough to understand. With spiteful eyes you burn for my grace. I was trying to stand outside of this, you were trying to save face.

You can say that I don't care, I don't care. You can hope that we still have something left to share. Just between you, baby and me there's nothing there.

I finally found someone that I can hold. You ask me to defend myself, as if I shouldn't be so bold. Get that look off of your face. I don't have the time, you don't have the place.

You can say that I don't care, I don't care. You can hope that we still have something left to share. Just between you, baby and me there's nothing there.

What are you gonna do? I can't salvage any truth for you. Everybody else already knows and it hurts you to realize so leave well enough, enough alone:

You don't need my hands to help you understand, you don't need to hear my voice (you have no choice). So don't being throwing stones, the closer we get, the harder they come. Even if your feeling alone, don't come home. When it ways up to you, you left it up to me.
