You were my wild companion
We were forever high high high
We burned the night around us
Sleeping could wait until we die
You were the scars of passion
And since the crashing came
You've broken every promise
I walked away

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everyone else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing when you crawl

It's such a weary feeling
When you've been stealing from yourself
Wishing the world away
Blaming someone else
No one can do this for you
Straighten you hair
Fix your face
Take all the pain inside you wash it away

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing when you crawl

Did I hear you?
Did I try?
Can I forgive myself for not standing by?

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing, laughin' when you crawl
I was blind to ya
Was lying to you
Said I love you but I'm laughing
When you crawl
Was blind to ya
You fall
I watched you fall
I watched you
