She wore out the feeling
With a tender killing
She paid for the blackout
I saw it rolling in

Was I, was I
Watching over you
Or watching you fall apart

Did I, did I
Lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold
Did I, did I
Pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold

She came with a warning
She left with the morning
An eye on the doorway
A scar in the early light

Was I, was I
Hanging on a word
Or was I just the messenger

Did I, did I
Lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold
Did I, did I
Pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold

In every look upon your face
There was an element of grace
Did I read between the lines or erase?

Did I, did I
Lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold
Did I, did I
Pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold
