When I let you go
I cursed myself, with empty hands.
Strong enough to watch you walk,
But not enough to understand.
With spiteful eyes you burn for my grace.
I was trying to stand outside of this.
You were trying to save face.

You can say that I don't care.
I don't care.
You can hope that we still
Have something left to share,
But just between you, baby, and me
Just between me, baby, and you,
There's nothing there.

I finally found someone I can hold.
You ask me to defend myself
As if I shouldn't be so bold, well,
Get that look off of your face;
I don't have the time,
You don't have the place,

To say that I don't care.
I don't care.
To hope that we still
Have something left to share.
And just between me, baby, and you
Just between you, baby, and me,
There's nothing there.

Baby, what are you gonna do?
I can't salvage any truth for you.
Everybody else already knows.
It hurts you to realize,
So leave well enough
Enough alone.

And you don't need my hands
To help you understand.
You don't need to hear my voice.
(You have no choice.)
So don't be throwing stones;
The closer we get,
The harder they come.

Now even if your feeling alone,
Don't come home,
'Cause when it was up to you
When it was up to you,
You left it up to me.

Oh, you left
Oh, you left
Oh, you left it up to me.
When it was up to you,
You left it up to me.
