Fall Over Me

He said I was the one
When the truth is I wasn’t
He’d have been better off
If he’d fallen straight over me

And I never meant to break him
Or leave him in pieces
The blood still pumping
Into the empty void
Where his heart used to be

While I dreamed a dream that was naught
‘Cause I was always losing
Running ‘round countries
I’ve never been

And the ocean’s too salty
For me to swim all the way
To try and fix what I fractured
‘Cause it might take two to dance
But it only takes one to turn out the light

And we never really belonged
In a world big enough for us
Where it all just meshed
And the colours didn’t bleed to black

And I wish I had known
… All the things I didn’t know
So I could have saved him the pain
Of loving me
The unattainable girl

That wanted to be caught
Without being tied down
To an unreal ideology
That didn’t fit her anyway

And agony is just a word
Until it’s raging through your veins
And hell might just be a sauna
Until you’re trapped inside
With the last person you can bear to look at

While heaven’s a dream
That I fear I might never touch
When I’m the bitch
That left him sobbing on the floor

‘Cause love made me a liar
A breaker of hearts
And I can never undo
What won’t be undone
When the heart and the mind aren’t in agreement

‘Cause I said he was the one
When the truth is he wasn’t
And we’d have been better off
If he’d fallen straight over me
