Relient K – There Was No Thief lyrics

For a time I thought there was a thief among us
I thought I'd track him down but prior to my pursuit
The smoke it cleared and to my disbelief
There was no thief, 'cause it was me that lost you
There was no thief, 'cause it was me that lost you

I guess it's safe to say you're never coming back
And I understand why you wouldn't want to
I guess it's up to me to find a way to get to you

[Chorus]
And there's just one last thing I have to say
As we reflect on the mess of all of this I've made
It was cowardice that made me push you away
I was so afraid 'cause you were so much better than me

And I can't see you getting used to
Living in the midst of your perfection
And I'm so lost, how can you trust
Somewhere the sun is always shining

[Chorus]
And there's just one last thing I have to say
As we reflect on the mess of all of this I've made
It was cowardice that made me push you away
I was so afraid 'cause you were so much better than me

I guess it's safe to say you're never coming back

    This song had a lot of meaning to me when my best friend that I had a crush on got a girlfriend. For a while I felt she'd stolen him from me but really it was me that pushed him away. I was the one who didn't have the courage to tell him I liked him before she got to him. I was afraid to tel him because he is so much better than I am. Now I know that he loves her and that nothing is going to separate them. The part of this song that didn't really line up with my situation was the fact that I got used to the fact that he had another girl. I didn't feel like I needed to find a way to get to him. I don't really understand the bridge/verse 2 or whatever you call it. It was all my fault for not telling him. She didn't steal him because I didn't own him.
