Wrong from the Start

Where did I go wrong, or was I wrong from the start?
Where did you go wrong, or were you wrong from the heart?
Why for false hope do we give in to what we shouldn’t feel?
Why for false love do we have to let go in order to heal?
The tears I cry that you’ll never see-
Sometimes I still don’t believe this is how it should be-
But whether it is or it isn’t I can’t deny where we are
And despite my questions, I know I let it go this far
I suppose I’m a riddle that you never solved
But I know you’re a problem I’ll never have fully resolved
Maybe when we were being honest in our silly minds
We were more dishonest to keep each other from stealing the finds
Maybe it was more one-sided than I would like to think
And then maybe it was mutual water through which we both had to sink
Answers are hard when you read different parts of the same book
Harder when you don’t have an end to understand what you mistook
Oh, Where did I go wrong, or was I wrong from the start?
Where did you go wrong, or were you wrong from the heart?
Why for false hope do we give in to what we shouldn’t feel?
Why for false love do we have to let go in order to heal?
It’s amazing how time changes us, but you’re still the same
I’m still me, and what doesn’t change is that we’re both to blame
Maybe it was easier for you than it will ever be for me
To just skip an end and pretend it was all for free
Because though you don’t know, it cost me so much
And even if you asked me now, I’d shrug it off with ‘such and such’
But I’ve never had to spend so much to get my broken heart back
And I know there are pieces for which I’ll always now lack
Eventually I’ll realize you don’t know the pain you gave
And maybe when I tried it was just too late to save
I’m not fully out of your life and you’re not really out of mine
I just have to pray that I’ll have strength to leave this all behind.
Oh, where did I go wrong? Was I wrong from the start?
Oh, where did you go wrong? Were you wrong from the heart?
Oh, why do we give in to what we shouldn’t feel?
Oh, why do we have to let go in order to heal?
