If I could just hear you say out loud, that you regretted
All the things that made you disappear
If you would admit you know the sorrow I’d accepted
Like a guilty child knows fear

If I could just see inside your head while you remember
The way we both hated life alone
If you would just say that I’m the one you let slip away
And not some circumstance that you’d outgrown

Because what I needed you to give is what you took from me
Assurance that I alone could earn your love
That it was me who wrote the book of lovability
I need to see your loss I guess
You only truly loved me if you loved the others less
It’s written on the rooftops, but my heart will not confess

So, just tell me I’m the only one you ever loved and lost
Tell me that your leaving hurt you more
Sing to me of the selfless way I served you
Cause my kind of love won’t go without reward

Remember sweet sister all the summers in New Hampshire
We’d hide from steaming suns in mountain streams
Why is it so that when you shoved me in the water?
I wouldn’t mind as much if I could pull you in with me.

Tell me I’m the only one you ever loved and lost
Tell me that your leaving hurt you more
Sing to me of the selfless way I served you
Cause my kind of love won’t go without reward

I need to see your loss I guess
You only truly loved me if you loved the others less
It’s written on the rooftops, but my heart will not confess

So, just tell me I’m the only one you ever loved and lost
Tell me that your leaving hurt you more
Sing to me of the selfless way I served you
Cause my kind of love won’t go without reward

Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me that your leaving hurt you more
Sing to me of the selfless way I served you
Cause my kind of love won’t go without reward

Such sacrifice won’t go with reward
My kind of love won’t go without reward
