I sit at your side as you cry,
And you sit at my side as I die.
We both know the truth,
And we both know the lies.
The truth is unbearable,
The lies make it so.
We will never know why,
And we will never understand.
No we never will understand.
You heard the news on the radio,
I heard the news through a microphone.
You couldn't dare to bare the pain,
And I couldn't dare to not bare the pain.
We both believed only to be pushed down,
We got back up so that we could live again.
Everything we know,
Is everything we never knew.
Everything we ever wanted,
Was all we ever had.
Life was unfair, you said so yourself.
But who was there to tell you it was?
And who was it that said it wasn't so?
I guess we will never know.
Just like everything else we won't know.
I cared for all the wrong things,
And you cared for all the right.
I never knew that till I was told,
And you never knew until I was told.
We laughed and played until it was dark,
Never realizing that the dark could cause more tears,
We shared our life together,
And now it's about to change.
You never cared for change,
And I was never bothered.
We just didn't believe enough to believe it.
I wish I could tell you how much I care,
But the words always become lost,
And I forget.
Of all the many things we both know,
We both know the truth.
And no matter how unbearable it is,
It will always be better than the lies.
And the truth is I love you,
And you love me back.
But it can never be for many things never are.
But how do we know?
It’s simple, we don't.
And we never will because it's not for us to say,
And that's one thing we're sure of.
