You never think your lover's words could kill you
And you can't for see the blow that is your last
But you've brought me to my knees with a blow that I believe
Has somehow paralyzed my need for fighting back

I can't pretend that they don't know your secret
And I can't pretend that I don't know it too
I can hear the people talking, I can feel their pity eyes

Dare I say the fault is really mine
Dare I say the fault is mine

I wish I could tell you
I love you still
I gave you the hammer
But I didn't know that you would strike to kill

You're quite as I stutter over questions
Whose answers I don't really want to know

Did you whisper that you loved her,
Drop your kisses on her neck
And with determination, down the wine
There will always be another and another choice to make

Another chance to justify the crime,
Another chance to choose the crime

I wish I could tell you
I love you still
I gave you the hammer
But I didn't know that you would strike to kill
