All The Things I Never Meant

I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry
and everytime I cut myself
you held me close and asked me why.

I never meant for you to see
what was hidden underneath
my tattered clothes, my hurting smile
beneath it all my secret grief.

I never meant for you to catch me
I didn't want you to care
You should have let me fall, baby
leave my heart laid bare.

and now as I lay here hurting
you're in pain too
If you believe nothing else
please know I love you.

I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry
and everytime I felt the blade
and saw the blood, I hid the lie.

There are lipstick stains upon my wrists
on the scars you sweetly kissed
you kept me alive
you took away my pain
and in the end
there was nothing for you to gain.

Is our love enough babe?
To keep us both alive?
We both know that the good die young
because the bad know what it takes to survive.

I never meant to hurt you
I never meant to make you cry
and in my heart I know
that I should say good bye.

So here is my last request
I know I dont desevere the rest
forget about me and live your life
because no matter how much I love you
I will never be your wife.

You've got white picket fence all over you
and Ive got nervous wits and bloody wrists.

We're too different, you and I.
Just know I never meant to hurt you.

Because the blade may dull the pain,
but it kills me to see you cry.

It's catchy, is it a song? Because it would be a good song.
