lyrics

Teary-eyed, she told him something wasn’t right—
plaguing her past, blocking her life.
Two and two, he put together and he knew.
Blown away, all he could say:

This is not your fault. This is not your fault.

Baby, I love you,
and there’s nothing I can say to you to put your pieces back together.
I try to understand what my mind can barely comprehend.
I know that you’ve got something to work through,
and there’s nothing I can do.

Living hell, somebody stole her from herself—
gutted her clean—and the pain keeps pulling her down
to the deepest deep that deep can be,
lying at night where she sleeps, haunting her dreams.

This was not her fault. It never was her fault.

Baby, I love you,
and there’s nothing I can say to you to put your pieces back together.
I try to understand what my mind can barely comprehend.
I know that you’ve got something to work through,
and there’s nothing I can do.

She sat in silence for a moment,
softly breathing to the beating of her heart,
so close but far away.

He took a breath as he stared deeply
into the eyes that gave him meaning every day
and promised he would stay.

Baby, I love you,
so here’s something I will say to you to put those pieces back together.
I try to understand what my mind can barely comprehend.
I know that you’ve got something to work through,
and that’s why I’m standing right beside you.
Right. Beside. You.
Because, you know my heart—it beats for only you,
and there’s nothing I can do.
