lyrics

I'd like to become the man that,
I am supposed to be,
But I'm a rotten tooth in,
A mouth full of crooked teeth.

Now doing the right thing ain't easy,
It doesn't come naturally,
And now you can barely look at me,
And I can barely speak.

And love we used to know,
Where to find it,
These feelings, they don't go,
And I can't hide it.

Do you still want me?
You can't look at me,
I should say I'm sorry,
But my throat won't let me speak.

I've been hiding all my flaws,
But, you saw the truth on my face,
And now that it's all come crashing down,
You've handled it with so much grace.

So now you know all my secrets,
And yet you still talk to me,
Your love was the atomic bomb,
And my heart was Nagasaki.

And love I used to know,
Who the hell I was,
Now I can't shake your shadow,
I can't escape your ghost.

Do you still want me?
You can't look at me,
I should say I'm sorry,
But my throat won't let me speak.

Do you still want me,
I can hardly breath,
I should say I'm sorry,
You can do better than me.
