lyrics

You never told me how much it hurts to be so lonely.
I just assumed that I lacked the gut to testify.
It always seemed neglect was easy, cuz I dealt it.
Now on this bus ride home I’m understanding why.

It’s hard to be Charity.

If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
I’ll try to change.

In the beginning, there was darkness before light.
Maybe that darkness is the reason I’m so blind.
Maybe the darkness is a boat without an anchor.
If I could lighten up the room, I’d be no stranger.

It’s hard to have clarity.

If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
If you’d believe me girl...
I’ll try to change.

Though I sound angry, I’m not angry at you.
I’m angry at the things I do.
I should be wiser, and not so insecure.
And learn to say sorry to you.

You never told me how much it hurts to be so lonely.
