This isn't your fault;
it's because of you
I stuck around so long

This isn't your fault;
it's not because of you
that I'm leaving now

This isn't your fault;
I was just waiting
for you to leave first

Don't blame yourself
this was bound to happen
no matter what you did

Don't blame yourself
I didn't want you to know
about everything hurting

Don't blame yourself
this was a long-term plan
nothing you did could change it

I didn't want to hurt you
so I covered up my own pain
and pretended I was fine

I didn't want to hurt you
and you wanted me to get better
so I pretended that too

I didn't want to hurt you
so I waited until you were
out of the picture

Now I'm free
to do what I need to
to do what I've meant to

Now I'm free
to follow my real destiny
to be who I always was

Now I'm free
to end this life
lived too long

I love you
so I want you
to be free too

I love you
so get on with life
forget about me

I love you
and so I'll never
look back
