lyrics

Well you tried and you tried
But you kept it all inside
And you knew, you knew that it’d kill

But the risk of her heart
When you knew you’d hit the mark
Of a bloody dying spring

When did you know that you loved her?
When did you know that you loved me?
When did you know that you couldn’t have us both?
You had us both.

Well I tried and I tried
But I read right through your lies
And I fear I cannot win

Twisted down to the ground
By an old love you re-found
Crippled under winter’s sting

When did you know that you loved her?
When did you know that you loved me?
When did you know that you couldn’t have us both?
You had us both.

Come now, roll away the thunder
Confess the truth and get it over
Then maybe then you can forgive yourself
And let me go

When did I know that you loved her?
When did I know that you loved me?
When did I know that you couldn’t have us both?
I am not yours.
