lyrics

Give me a second and maybe I'll tell you the reason I gave up your feelings for mine.
Actually, if we are totally honest, I never cared about what you've been through.
Please don't be angry, it's only a fable, it didn't really happen you're imagining things.
I was the carringest, lovingest person I can't help it that I was better than you.

I'd just like to sing alone
Even if these things relate to you
I've been waiting to sing my own song.

Give me a second and maybe I'll tell you the reason I gave up your feelings for mine.
Actually, if we are totally honest, I never cared about what you've been through.
Please don't be angry, it's only a fable, it didn't really happen you're imagining things.
I was the carringest, lovingest person I can't help it that I was better than you.

You don't know what's best for me.
You'd like me to write like others do.
I've been waiting to prove that you're wrong.

Little maybes give you speech so you can
Submit your infant soul-stains without seeming concrete
with reference to your abusive history,
which so clearly needs more attention you're undone.

Give me a second and maybe I'll tell you the reason I gave up your feelings for mine.
Actually, if we are totally honest, I never cared about what you've been through.
Please don't be angry, it's only a fable, it didn't really happen you're imagining things.
I was the carringest, lovingest person I can't help it that I was better than you.

We have suffered just like you,
Even though most people show no proof...
