I thought your arms were safe
And that your heart was all mine
But I was wrong yet again
It seems I’m wrong most the time

You’re not completely mine
Your heart is divided in two
You love someone else
And yet I still belong to you

Your love is not mine alone
She’s the keeper of your tears
Your shoulder to lean on
You give her your sorrows and fears

So where does that leave me?
Alone in the driving rain
With arms that held you
Flowing red and in pain

Do I cry another ocean?
Tear of another piece of my heart?
Or just close my eyes and pretend
That you’re still mine in whole not in part?

Tell me what I should do
As I look in your sad eyes
Do I swallow the bitter truth
Or feast on the sweetness of lies?
