This hand isn’t yours
Nor is that cologne
This is not the car
That usually brings me home
I’m walking to the door
With him, not alone
This is what I want
This is the unknown
I’m not turning my back
There is no betrayal
This is not rejection
I know that you’re so frail
We weren’t meant to be
For one reason or the next
But no amount of reason
Could make me love you less
Trust me, my beautiful
You’ve taken some of me
You turned my complications
Into simplicity
But you’ve got your ambitions
And I’ll only hold you back
I swear it’s not on purpose
But it’s an honest fact
I can’t let me hurt you
And you can read the signs
Baby, they’re all pointing
And saying you can’t be mine
