If I never called you
Then you'd never call me,
Yet somehow I'm to blame
For wanting to set you free.

You confide in another
Every second of every day,
But somehow I'm to blame
For letting your heart find its way.

I'm not the bad guy here.
I'm not totally in the clear,
But I don't see how I'm wrong
In being the one who's strong
Enough to say for the two of us
There's nothing more to discuss.

Confronted with the truth
You resort to hopen (hoping),
But somehow I'm to blame
For asking your eyes to open.

Looking at us together
I've never seen such sadness,
Yet somehow I'm to blame
For offering a chance at happiness.

I'm not the bad guy here.
I'm not totally in the clear,
But tell me how I'm mistaken
In wanting us to awaken
To a world of possibilities
Full of actualized identities.

Shielded by so-called devotion
You say it's my choice to make,
But somehow I'm to blame
For knowing what's at stake

If I do nothing,
Nothing we're sure to become,
Then certainly I am to blame
For the slow agony we succumb.

I'll be the bad guy here.
You're totally in the clear,
But you're not exactly right
In declaring with such fright
We most surely failed
Until the future's been unveiled.
My first attempt at lyrics.  More to come, I'm sure...

Especially when they come out with 'We could have lasted forever, if you would have tried harder' T^T

Any couple could last forever, but it doesn't mean they should...you know that though...
