you always were my refuge, were my shoulder
there was always a place to lay my head
and i should have taken your hand
should've held it as we stumbled
but i let it slip
i let it go instead

for i cannot give you as much as i owe you
i don't have enough love to pay my debts
i thought i'd have aplenty
but now i see i'm pretty empty
and the longer we linger
the worse it gets

so i'll plant fences round my dwelling like a garden
and wrap chains around my body like a cloak
and i'll bite my tongue and ask him for forgiveness
for the hearts and vows and promises i broke
and i'll bite my tongue and ask him for forgiveness
for the hearts and vows and promises i broke

don't you waste a tear for me
don't you waste your time with me
don't you waste yourself for me
don't you waste a tear for me
don't you waste your time with me
don't
