Guilt Reflected

from Perfect Tears by Color Theory



Looking at the floor I declare
I can’t go on wasting all my time on you
Trying to ignore your despair
As tears splash down
Naming every flaw of yours
Like a grocery list

I never felt the way that you feel
I never knew my words could heal
Don’t have to look in your eyes to see
The guilt reflected in me

Hope you threw away that self-help book
I bought for you
Like I only wanted to help
Nothing was too small to overlook
I tried hard to
Concentrate on your mistakes
To conceal my own

Sorry to have been so obscene
Would you accept my sincere apologies?
Didn’t have to prove anything
It had to end
But with gentle words
Instead of a shouting match.


from Perfect Tears, released October 5, 1999
