I sit among the sun and the trees
the bird and the bees
and they tell me these things
i just can't believe

Gossip travels
sex sells
hearts unravel
hate swells

I could sit here everyday
without a care
just throw it away
but that's not me
yeah, thats not me

I could empty my brain
cancel my thought
we could all be the same
Unless that's not truly what you sought

Actions hurt
Words can make me cry
why can't we revert
back to that sunny summer day that I
tightened your noose and made you fly
Oh, why?
Why did I do that?

My gossip travels.
My sex sells.
My heart unravels.
My hate swells.
My actions hurt.
My words can make you cry.
Why can't we revert
back to that day cause I
I swear I didn't want you to die
didn't want you to die
Cause that's not me, no

I swear I
didn't want you to die
couldn't you see the tears in my eyes
as you flew in the sky
like a bird without wings
like a voice that never sings
you withered
and I shivered
I swear I didn't want you to die
Cause that's not me
no, that's not me

I sit among the sun and the trees
the birds and the bees
I hear you
singing softly
in the wind
again and again
i run to you
with a grace i never knew
i contained
and when I found myself alone I was ashamed
It wasn't you
cause that's not me
no, that's not me
