I could admit my faults
I could confess that I am wrong
I could do anything
But anything would take too long
And besides
It's not the way I do things now.

I could betray my own trust
I could decide what to do
I could still fall in love
But I don't think I love you
And besides
It's not the way I think these days

I could be strong and firm
I could demand what's mine
I could be a man of morals
And everything would be just fine
But aside
From all of these
Drawbacks

It's not the way I am anymore.
