Who's lonely now? Which one of us is suffering?
Who likes to look at pictures and cries, but way too late?

I thought that you would wait for me, your wants I needn't heed.
And all because I lacked conviction, the judgment's my mistake.
Who's breathless now? Who only hyperventilates?
Which one of us is sunshine and which one's growing dim?

I thought that you would wait for me, your wants I needn't heed.
And all because I lacked conviction, the judgment's my mistake.
Who's lonely now? Who's reaching out to no one?

I wanted space, and now change has fallen through the cracks.
It's cruel, unusual punishment to kiss fingerprinted skin.
The wrong man was convicted, you know I did the deed.
The wrong man lies beside you and waits for you to wake,
