I wouldn’t know you
If I saw you today
That’s what they said would happen
If I let myself stray

And I did – I ran across the water
To get out of their trap
Now I’m lost, now I’m tired, now I’m bleeding
But I might never go back

I wouldn’t know you
If I saw you today
Though the lines on your face
They don’t ever, ever change

But I did – I burst out of the water
To rest awhile on the shore
Now I’m parched, now I’m scared, now I’m bleeding
But I’d rather stay here than go back there for more

Your face decorates the milk carton
I like to remember you like an old friend
We kicked rocks in the street
Picked flowers in spring
And held hands
Maybe it’s all a part of the plan
But I must confess I’m losing faith
I’m losing faith in faith itself

Yeah I changed – I dried up all the water
From when your family pushed me into this deep well
Now I’m sad, now I’m empty, now I’m bleeding
But I’d rather stay here than go back to their hell
