A building doesn't care
Whom it crushes when it dies,
And I can tell you feel the same
When I look into your eyes.
You're a tumbling tower, baby.
A fortress falling down.
So I hope you can forgive me
If I cannot stick around.
You were everything I wanted,
You were all that, much, and more.
You once had been so sturdy,
So giving, and secure.
But now that you're collapsing,
And do not seek rescue,
I have to leave or you'll believe that
You can crush me too
