I think you realised I'd always fall

Cave under the misery that stalks us all

I think you knew I didn't have the strength

That I couldn't stand for my own defence

I think you saw through all my ways

Saw the tears through my fa├žade

I think you felt that I was cursed

A disappointment from my birth

I didn't know I didn't know

How could you let me go?

You saw the pressures,

Saw the strain,

Held my hand through all the pain.

You knew so much you saw it all

How could you let me fall?

I think I realise it all built up

Watched you halt, watched you stop

I think I knew it couldn't last

Knew it was all happening too fast

I think I saw it dragging you under

Guess I know there's little wonder

I think I feel that I understand

I guess I know you can't hold my hand

I didn't know I didn't know

How could you let me go?

You saw the pressures,

Saw the strain,

Held my hand through all the pain.

You knew so much you saw it all

How could you let me fall?

If you had said, if you had known

Would I have left you all alone?

I know my life was one big hell

Did I have to put you through that as well?

Does fortune always work this way?

I know you'll survive for a better day

You kept me strong you were always there

I guess I know you'll always care

But you have your own life, and world

Eventually you didn't have a spare hand to let me hold

I didn't know I didn't know

How could you let me go?

You saw the pressures,

Saw the strain,

Held my hand through all the pain.

You knew so much you saw it all

How could you let me fall?
