Lyrics

I saw you struggling there caught between two beasts

I should have rescued you from the ensuing gory feast

I couldn’t bring myself to help you; no courage to be near

I heard your cries of agony and I heard your screams of fear

 

I turned my back on you. I turned my back on you.

‘Don’t know why I am this way but I turned my back on you

 

I still couldn’t move outside myself to provide what help I could

I was too afraid to assist you; I feared my fear if I would

It really wouldn’t have been that hard to walk out the door to help

To chase those two devourers away but I couldn’t stand your cries of yelp

 

I turned my back on you. I turned my back on you.

‘Don’t know why I am this way but I turned my back on you.

 

I turned my back on you. I turned my back on you.

‘Don’t know why I am this way but I turned my back on you. 

 

I now know what I would do next time (if I had a chance to care)

But the thing that really stabs my soul is that I knew you knew I was there

Oh, it hurts. My heart aches. I’m sorry . . . I’m sorry . . . I’m sorry.

 

I turned my back on you. I turned my back on you.

‘Don’t know why I am this way but I turned my back on you.
