She wore out the feeling
With a tender killing
She paid for the blackout
I saw it rolling in.

Was I, was I
Watching over you, or just
Watching you fall apart.

Did I, did I lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold?
Did I, did I pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold?

She came with a warning
She left with the morning
An eye on the doorway
A scar in the early light.

Was I, was I
Hanging on a word
Or was I just a messenger.

Did I, did I lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold?
Did I, did I pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold?

And in the look upon your face
There was an element of grace
Did I read between the lines?

Did I, did I lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold?
Did I, did I pull the wool over your eyes
Or keep you from the cold?

Did I, did I?
Did I, did I?
Did I, did I?

Did I, did I lend a hand to hold you down
Or just a hand to hold?
