I won't forget the reasons
I went so far to love you
A man is most important
When he's unmoved by separation
And tries to match the tempo
In which death succeeds creation
Burning there to keep you
All I needed was some patience

When you turned into a woman
When I loved you as a child
I wanted to protect you
From the things that made you smile

My little alibi
Time couldn't change us
But we tried
My little alibi
I wanna see you cry

I won't forget the reasons
I went so far to love you
The patterns in the trees and winds
Forgot themselves inside you
But I was not the wind
I was an anchor just to keep you
As clean, never fleeting
Like the innocence that bound you

And I hate to say it
But you were bad in every way
I guess I had it coming
I feel it still today

My little alibi
Time couldn't change us
But we tried
My little alibi
I wanna see you cry

I won't forget the reasons
I went so far to love you
A man is most important
When he's unmoved by separation
And tries to match the tempo
In which death succeeds creation
Burning to keep you
All I needed was some patience

As you turned into a woman
When I loved you as a child
I wanted to protect you
From the things that drove you wild

My little alibi
Time couldn't change us
But we tried
My little alibi
I wanna see you cry

I wanna see you cry
