lyrics

And so it comes to this
Alone here in the dark
If I could I’d just confess
But don’t know where to start
Was I always on this path
But chose not to see the signs
Maybe it’s my imagination
I’d say I’m paying for my crimes
I’ve lied to you girl more than once
That’s the least of all my sins
I’ve done a terrible thing
Girl I’ve done a terrible thing

Nobody ever sees
In theory nobody ever knows
I could walk these streets without a care
Instead the fear it only grows
I feel every eye upon me
Trying to peek inside my mind
Maybe it’s my imagination
I’d say I’m paying for my crimes
If I could I’d lose these childhood chains
And shed this serpent’s skin
I’ve done a terrible thing
Girl I’ve done a terrible thing

It seems every time I pull this thread
I tie another thousand knots
I know everything is for a reason
I just can’t connect the dots
So I walk alone, retrace my steps
Like I’ve done a thousand times
Maybe it’s my imagination
I’d say I’m paying for my crimes
We let the world see what we want
And we hide the truth within
I’ve done a terrible thing
Girl I’ve done a terrible thing
