There Was No Thief
by Relient K



For a time I thought there was a thief among us
I thought I’d track him down but prior to my pursuit
The smoke cleared into my disbelief
There was no thief ‘cuz it was me that lost you
There was no thief ‘cuz it was me that lost you

I guess it’s safe to say you’re never coming back
And I understand why you wouldn’t want to
I guess it’s up to me to find a way to get to you

And there’s just one last thing that I have to say
As we reflect on the mess of all this I’ve made
It was cowardice that made me push you away
I was so afraid ‘cuz you were so much better than me

I can’t see you getting used to
Living in the midst of your perfection
And I’m so lost how you can trust
Somewhere the sun is always shinin’, oh

And there’s just one last thing that I have to say
As we reflect on the mess of all this I’ve made
It was cowardice that made me push you away
I was so afraid ‘cuz you were so much better than me

I guess it’s safe to say you’re never coming back.
