I -- don't know what you want me for
take my hand and taking more
than I ever had to give
And you -- pushing back in all directions
hide away and try to disappear

Sunlight burns around you
Everything you wanted came to you so easily
You can't understand it
The child of privilege, climbing on a ledge
Because you had the luxury
You fell and rose just like a star
glowing faintly from afar
But you burned me just the same
And I couldn't tell you how it hurt me
couldn't tell you anything at all
You -- liked to slide the needles in
Gently just below the skin
Where the acid could release
And I tried to swallow all the poison
Fearing I would never drink again

Leaving -- no traces
In the end you left me, did what I could never do
I can't -- hold it against you
I did the best I could, you did just what you should
You don't owe a thing to me
