My Crime

I'll never understand you, damn you

You keep pulling my heart into you

I dedicated my comfort, I dedicated my time

I offered you the rest of my life

You ran away as if it were a crime

Did I love you too much or too little?

Was I falling off the edge or stuck in the middle?

If it's a crime to not be over you, make an arrest

I'm sorry I pulled out my heart from out my chest

I thought we'd have something that wouldn't die

Wanting me & loving me was your biggest lies

I know that we're moving on, but I'm still left behind

I won't forgive myself for what was my crime
