Oh, I never...
No, I never saw you...
Saw you try to pick yourself up
And I tried to...
Oh, I tried to tell you
But you were convinced you were stuck
And I never...
No, I never interfered with your own personal plans
God, I wanted...
God, I wanted to help you
But you wouldn't take hold of my hands

Chorus:
And I wanted more from this life
More than you could ever ask for
And I was building up a temple
Oh, you were getting drunk
And knocking yours to the floor

No, I never...
No, I never figured...
Figured you would get so bad
And I thought you...
Oh, I thought you would wake up
But you only got mad
And I tried to...
Oh, I tried to be open
But you kept yourself locked up
Well, all the feelings that you were feeling
You wouldn't share...
Share the pain that fucked you up

Repeat Chorus

And now we're...
And now we're so distant
Distant by more than just space
Because I'm out here...
Oh, I'm out here living a passion
And you are out of place

And I wanted more from this life
More than you could ever ask for
And I was building up a temple
Oh, you were getting drunk, yeah...

Repeat Chorus
