I Know That We Weren't Right

from Compose Yourself (LP) by Jamie B Sings



Every time I win the battle
I tell myself I've won the war
All I want's to be alright
Surely that's what life is for?

Sometimes I still want you
But I wish it wasn't true
I don't want to grasp what's in the past
'Cause wanting only makes you blue...

My cracking smile betrays me
On the darker of my days
I crave connection, but introspection
Drags me back into familiar ways

And every time I see your face
My heart still lights up inside
Even though I know deep down, I loved you
I know that we weren't right
I know that we weren't

Right and wrong, like vultures circling
Around my head for days
Second guessing, ever stressing
Ain't no winners in this game we play...

I'm sorry you did more for me
Than I ever did for you
Still trying to get my head straight
And admit I never had a clue...

We'll always have the memories
Now it's time I set you free
But really, it's only me
Because you have always been

And every time I see your face
My heart still lights up inside
Even though my heart still aches thinking of you
From time to time
I know that we weren't right

Now, it seems The Great Pretender
No longer wants to hide
All I seek now is surrender
To the tears that gather in my eyes...

So every time you win the battle
Tell yourself there's still a war
Ever learning, ever growing
Never knowing what you have in store...
