You were convenient

And I know it sounds cruel

You offered the love I needed

But I never said that

Yes you held me

Breathed life into my crippled heart

It went too far – I was too gone to care

But I swear I never said that

If I had known how much I'd hurt you

I would have kept my pain in check

But I needed something – someone – you were there

I wish now I could say it

You're staring at me

And the look in your eyes…

Thank you, you gave me all you could

You say you'd give me more

And if

If the sunlight on the river shattered

Pierced the glass around my heart

Then I'd say it

But I can't

That lie would be too cruel

So here's a kiss and here's your heart back

Because I never said I loved you
