You chose to go on the road alone
Dissapeared into the darkness
Isolated yourself
Refused to listen

You think running as fast as you can
Is the best you can do
You think a passenger
Will only slow you down

Are things the wrong way around
In your own world
Your own perspective
You keep stubornly staring at

But even moving at the speed of light
You can't run away from the truth
The lies and you've been leaving in your tracks
Will catch up to you

I welcomed you into my heart
Tried to make it a home
For your restless soul
But you only passed through

When you were tired
My arms tried to hold you
Tried to comfort you
Through the dark nights

Tried to make a warm fire
But you kept opening the door
Letting the cold wind and rain in
Until even the embers died out

I never wanted to let you go
But you didn't give me anything to hold onto

Never did what we said we would
Felt all alone
Knocked as hard as I could
But you were never home
When I needed you
You didn't come through

So now I just lie here
You're not next to me anymore
Trying to forget
The world I created

Never knew how to say how I feel
Next to you I felt confused
Everything felt real
But now I just feel used
Those three words were said too fast
It wasn't enough and it didn't last

So now I just lie here
You're not next to me anymore
Trying to forget
Everything you ever said

I was trying to plant a garden together
But nourishment ceased from your side
Your moods shifting like the weather
Flowers trampled by the unsteady ride
Wasted time chasing you
Lost my grace falling for you

So now I just lie here
You're not next to me anymore
Trying to forget
That we shared a bed

If a lover is what you need
Then a stranger I'll be
Love has made my heart bleed
One too many times to be set free
Now it is decreed
My heart stays with me

Promises deceive us
We confuse love with lust
Comfort for trust
While true love gets lost
We think it's what we want most
Then when it breaks we pay the cost

We are all strangers to love
We don't know her anymore
Her patience, endurance and forgiveness
We confuse with weakness
We want to force her into our relationships
While she can't be so tightly gripped

But we don't know that
Because we don't take the time
To get to know her
Instead we make up fantasies
Of what we want her to be
Of what we think Love should be

So if a lover is what you need
Then a stranger I'll be
Because you are a stranger to love
And falling for the wrong thing
Has left me too damaged
To risk it again

here on the ground
i cannot even remember
why i fell in the first place

but i also do not know
how to get back up either
