about

originally considered the soliloquy

lyrics

I never asked for this,
you know that all I ever wanted was a reason to exist
I needed something to grow,
I would've watered you more if you had only let me know...

that your roots had dried up
and the search for water had become
a search for a love without bind
'cause the confines of this container had been limiting your life

there is something you should know
I would have given you more room to grow
I could have changed, replaced and rearranged my life
If you had only let me know

If I could count
the times that I've been riddled with self-doubt,
then I'd find
at least one hundred percent of the time you were never mine

there is something you should know
I would have given you more room to grow
I could have changed, replaced and rearranged my life
If you had only let me know

I just wish there was a way that I could know
If you've been sleeping alone
