You were my wild companion 
We were forever high, high, high
We burned the night around us
 Sleeping could wait until we died
You wear the scars of passion 
And since the crashing came
You've broken every promise 
I walked away

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing 
When you crawl 

It's such a weary feeling
When you've been stealing from yourself  Wishing the world away
 Blaming someone else

No one can do this for you
 Straighten your head, fix your faith 
Take all the pain inside you
Wash it away

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing 
When you crawl 

Did I hear you, did I try
Can I forgive myself for not standing by

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
Was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing 
When you crawl 

I was blind to ya
Was lying to you
Said I love you but I'm laughing 
When you crawl 
Was lying to ya
You fall
I watched you fall
I watched you
