Lyrics

I'm sorry, baby, but
you can't stand in my light any more
you're moving back to the shadows
I can't fight this any more

I tried to heal you, I tried to fix you
I tried to show you compassion
I tried to listen, I tried to love you
even though you were broken

I let you get up close to me
I let you feel the warm and the calm
and you resisted, it took me time to notice, but now I
see the shadows as they fall

I always find the broken ones
what does this say about me?
maybe I'm the broken one, maybe when the lights go down
maybe I'm the one who feels lonely

I'm sorry, baby, but
you can't stand in my light any more
you're moving back to the shadows
I can't fight you more

I hate to leave you standing
in the corner on your own, but
you can't feel the sun unless you open up your heart
I'm sorry, baby
