Catching Smoke

I lost you a long time ago
That explains this to and fro
Your heart was never mine to begin with
This is why I'm going to leave
One foot in and the other out
I knew it but I hid my doubts
At the start I kept my joy in a little box
Then you told me to show you everything I've got
The box opened with such character
You decided that that wasn't what you were after
I fought to perfect what was once set in gold
I cried to keep whatever I could hold
I got on my knees a couple of times
But nothing could ever make you mine
I lost you when I got you
That is the sad and obvious truth
