Yesterday I offered you my heart
Today you took it freely
I won't ask you to let me have yours
(But someday I will have it)
I will just trust you with mine
And if tomorrow or next week it gets broken
And nothing remains but tatters
Well, it will be my fault, not yours.

Yesterday I offered you my heart
Today you smiled brightly at it
I won't ask you to let me be your everything
(Although I know I could be)
I will simply let you be mine
And if tomorrow or next week you leave me
And I keep nothing of you
Well, it will be my fault, not yours.

Yesterday I offered you my heart
Today you held it close to you
I won't ask you if you dream of me
(I know I'm not exactly dream material)
I will simply make you my dreams
And if tomorrow or next week our ties dissolve
And my nights become empty
Well, it will be my fault, not yours.

Yesterday I offered you my heart
Today you lovingly put it into yours
I won't ask you to write a song for me
(Music can't be commanded)
I will simply write you poems
And if tomorrow or next week we separate
And my ink runs desert dry
Well, it will be my fault, not yours.

Yesterday I offered you my heart
Today you carry it always with you
I won't ask you if I mean the world to you
(The world is a lot to ask for)
I will just know you are more than that to me
And if tomorrow or next week something happens
And my world ceases existing
Well, it will be my fault, not yours
