lyrics

If I could right all of her wrongs
I would undo all that she did
But you would still look at me sideways
And her apology is not mine to give

If you could only hear me say “I love you”
The way I mean it to be heard
Then we could finally lean against each other
And never say another painful word

Cause I’m a mess when I am with you
And I’m a mess when I’m alone
But at least I am consistent
At least I know what I must own

So please be still
And please try to believe me
That I was put on earth to love you
And all you need to do is let me
All you need to do is let me

She loved you once as I did
I have no doubt her love was strong
but when she fell from her own graces
You thought it was you that she’d done wrong

Now I am scared that you will drop me
If I ever let go of myself
I hope that I can still be my own woman
After I’ve given you everything else

Cause I’m a mess when I am with you
And I’m a mess when I’m alone
But at least I am consistent
At least I know what I must own

So please be still
And please try to believe me
That I was put on earth to love you
And all you need to do is let me
All you need to do is let me
