Pictured how I was gonna do it
Just turn up at his artist studio
Boldly knock on the door
He'd answer it dishevelled
Lying in a pool of paint
As part of an installation on the floor
Then I'd calmly say 'Hello, my name's Charlie and I know that you're in love with my girlfriend'
Then I'd knock him spark out and walk back home
Still unsure whether blood was on my hand or just red paint.

And you'll love me once again
And you'll love me for my show of strength
And you'll feel safe from harm
And you'll hold me and you'll love me once again

But that's not how it happened
Cause he wrote to you every day
Mostly letters, sometimes sketches with no words
And you kept them hidden away
Cause you just couldn't throw them out
And because you couldn't bear to see me hurt
But oh, you tried so hard to love me with all your heart
But your love for me got wounded in the frontline
And when I tried to make you laugh like I used to in the bath
You'd turn away before I made it to the punchline

When I looked at your face and compared it to our early days
You knew you couldn't keep the truth from me any more
So you opened up a box of magazines
And hundreds of his letters poured out like a ravine
And when I said that you should go to him
You had that look back in your eyes like you loved me again
And I told you it would break my heart
But if you really loved him then I guess we had to part
Yeah, I told you it would break my heart
But if you really loved him then I guess we had to part
Yeah, I told you it would break my heart
But if you really loved him then I guess we had to part

Yeah, I did it all for you
I did it all for you
