I'm sorry, baby
but you can't stand in my light anymore
You're moving back to the shadows
and I can't fight this anymore.
I tried to heal you
and I tried to fix you
I tried to show you compassion
I tried to listen
I tried to love you
even though you were broken.
I let you get up close to me
I let you feel the warm and calm
and you resisted
it took it me time to notice
but now I see the shadows as they fall
I always find the broken ones
what does this say about me?
maybe I'm the broken one
maybe when the lights go down
maybe I'm the one who feels lonely.
Hate to leave you standing in the corner on your own
but you can't feel the sun unless you open up your heart
I'm so sorry, baby.
but you can't stand in my light anymore.
