lyrics

Sun’s coming out and I was taught
It’s only after the storm has abated you see
The damage that it truly wrought
And I always thought I was the victim
Thought that I was some pure hearted hero
And convinced myself you were the villain

But now I see everything clearly
Truth is we were both hurting each other
It’s just that you hurt me in ways we could see

And I am in pain everyday
And while it was there long before you my love
You sure didn’t take it away
You were a monster but so was I
And I’m just sorry that it took me so long to realise
I was in pain

And when the storm raged all through our town
We were both clinging so tight to the mast of our ship
We didn’t realise that we brought it down
You were my confidante and my best friend
Thought we would stick it out until the end
And we did
It just came before marriage and kids

Then you were gone and I had to move on
Cos it’s not the bad memories that kill you my dear
It’s the memories that make you write love songs
So I didn’t grieve and I need to grieve
And while it’s unlikely that you’ll ever hear this
I just need to know you believe

That I am in pain everyday
And while it was there long before you my love
You sure didn’t take it away
I caused you pain everyday
And while I did not raise my hand or my voice
I hurt you in all of my own ways

I know that this is for the better
I’ll keep a piece of you inside my heart
I don’t regret a second of our time together
And I hope you’re happy every second we’re apart
