You said you love me, and I know it’s true

But if you do this, you know we’ll be through

It’s not like ending this is what I want to do

Because I love you


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


You think the edge of that blade sounds nice right about now

And my question to you is just how?

How can this be a thought that your heart will allow?

Have you forgotten your vow?


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


You said that you want to marry me one day

But how can that happen if you decide not to stay?

It is your heart that your mind will betray

You leave me looking after you with dismay


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


And what about those children that we’ve discussed?

Were all the things we said just too rushed?

The way you play this game has become too much

Tell me we still have our trust


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


You told me you want to give me joy

But if you walk away now you will only destroy

This is a problem that you can’t avoid

You have a choice


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


Don’t let me go just because your mother said so

There are things about you that she doesn’t know

She doesn’t even accept the side that you show

Only I know what you hide below


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


Don’t you dare turn to the cold refuge of that knife

You would miss out on a long and happy life

You wouldn’t live to see me as your wife

We can get past this strife


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


And what about that cold winter day?

The one where you light up the dreary gray

The one where you kiss my lips and don’t wanna pull away

What if that’s today?


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core


And what about our walk in the wood?

Where you show me everything you could

Where our love truly withstood

You told me that we should


But I know this isn’t you, you’ve never felt like this before

Don’t turn away from me and walk right out that door

I don’t care when you say there will always be more

Because you are my core
