We all make our plans
We all have our choices
Try on different faces
Talk in other voices
I said a lot of things
That never let me sleep
Made promises I really meant to keep

I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I took the blame when I could have run
I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I know I stayed when I could have gone
I don't expect it to be easy for me

We're tied together by a simple little pledge
Before we know the trust it takes
To walk up to that edge
We build a house of cards
Where the wind has always blown
We build our little garden
On a bed of sand and stone

It took too long for me to be who I am
Maybe it's enough for me to be it when I can

I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I took the blame when I could have run
I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I know I stayed when I could have gone

Our little houses where the wind has always blown
Our little garden - on a bed of sand and stone

We drift along in quiet waters on the tide
Rise and fall in rhythm – almost satisfied
We let ourselves be down – we let ourselves be used
I only ever wanted to be taken in by you

It took too long for me to be who I am
Maybe it's enough for me to be it when I can

I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I took the blame when I could have run
I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I know I stayed when I could have gone

I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I took the blame when I could have run
I'm not ashamed of the things I've done
I know I stayed when I could have gone

I don't expect it to be easy for me
