You're seeing what I couldn't see
Your biggest plans were laid
Not seeing that you, dear
Wanted away from the light I bring.

Faking what I couldn't fake
Feeling what I couldn't feel
If you just stayed here
I could have built a perfect life for us.

Oh, you'd love it all
If only you'd have shown me some
Candor rather than silences.
Now, it's just, "Goodbye."

The cards that we held stayed the same
The hands hadn't changed in weeks
If you didn't go cheat
we'd be living the life that you'd love to lead
but trust wasn't ever your thing
A breaker of hearts & locks
If you just stayed here
we could have had it all
