As We Fall Apart

I thought that things were solid.
We’d never come undone.
You told me that you loved me.
I knew you were the one.

Then one day we got to talking,
And talking turned to yelling.
How much longer can we keep this up?
There’s just no way of telling.

Now that things are shaky,
I wonder what’s the truth.
I fear that we won’t make it.
A heartbreak in my youth.

I know that we should say goodbye.
Out seems to be the only way.
But what’s right is too hard to face.
I’m scared to walk away.

But now you say you didn’t mean it.
My, how things have changed!
But still I have to ask myself,
Why do I feel so strange?

And so we tough it out some more,
Hoping for the better.
But I swear, I love you babe.
If that’s a lie, cut up my favorite sweater
