lyrics

Your stare, what it does to me
It’s nothing like anyone else’s especially recently
I hadn't seen it for years, but then it appeared
I did nothing.

I’m caught, I said I would never be caught again
I even managed to turn away and laugh before I turned back in
One stare took control of five years of nothing at all
I did nothing.

I harvest no ill will but hope you understand
That I never can consider you a friend
And now that I've been let down again
I can’t take the silence
Though while the emptiness is real I more than ever want to feel your stare again

I don’t want you in my shoes
It’s not your fault that I wouldn't let anyone near me
Nor is it your fault that I have regrets, that I have my debts
I did nothing

I just want one answer please
When it all went wrong, why did you think best to call me?
Why did you think it was best to ask me to come, to ask me to care?
I did nothing

I harvest no ill will but hope you understand
That I never can consider you a friend
And now that I've been let down again
I can’t take the silence
Though even as my feelings change the only certainly from that day is I did

Nothing to deserve this. No. Not at all.

Your stare, what it does to me
It’s nothing like anyone else’s that I’ll probably ever see
And with all of that said, I know I’d look again
