Sufjan Stevens – I Walked lyrics

[Verse 1]
Lover, will you look at me now?
I'm already dead to you
But I'm inclined to explain
What I could not before

Whatever you didn't do, what you couldn't say
I am sorry the worst has arrived
For I deserve more
For at least I deserve the respect of a kiss goodbye

Tell me, do you think of me now
As I think of you?
For I could not have shaken
The touch of your breath on my arm

For it has stayed in me as an epithet
I am sorry the worst has arrived
For I'm on the floor
In the room where we made it our last touch of the night

[Chorus]
I walked, cause you walked
But I won't probably get very far
Sensation to what you said
But I'm not about to expect something more

I would not have run off
But I couldn't bear that it's me, it's my fault
I should not be so lost
But I've got nothing left to love

[Verse 2]
Lover, will you look from me now
I'm already dead
But I've come to explain
Why I left such a mess on the floor

For when you went away I went crazy
I was wild with the breast of a dog
I ran through the night
With a knife in my chest, with the lust of your loveless life

[Chorus]
I walked, cause you walked
But I won't probably get very far
Sensation to what you said
But I'm not about to expect something more

I would not have run off
But I couldn't bear that it's me, it's my fault
I should not be so lost
But I've got nothing left to love

[Outro (2x)]
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
I walked, cause you walked
