These Green Eyes – Self Inflicted lyrics

I don't mean to tear you apart,
But I hit a nerve.
Last night you weren't sleeping.
I didn't mean to hurt you.

Another time I might have been more open
With the things that I was feeling,
But I was never one for sharing.
Taken out of context was the meaning
Of our whole relationship,
And now I must be leaving.

I don't mean to tear you apart,
But I hit a nerve.
Last night you weren't sleeping...
I didn't mean to hurt you.
The choices that I make
Are mine to live with.
I didn't want to argue...
That's why I never told you.

That's why I never told you
What I was really up to
And now we haven't spoken
Since, you and I, we're broken.

So there you were...
You closed your eyes...
You had to know that I was lying.
I won't be back this time, please,
Try to understand...
I don't want to know what you were dreaming...
Don't want to know what you were seeing...
Cuz then I'll know what I've been missing.

That's why I never told you
What I was really up to.
And now we haven't spoken
Since, you and I, we're broken.

I don't mean to tear you apart,
But I hit a nerve.
Last night you weren't sleeping.
I didn't mean to hurt you.
