Music and Lyrics by Jac Mestel

You don’t even touch me anymore
I feel rejected yeah I feel unsure
You can’t possibly get how I feel
You don’t see that I need time to heal from you

Try to keep my mind from thinking it
But there she is at the local market
Drawing her pictures and you barely mask it
I keep your pillow cause you still ask it of me

But it’s not fair, and it’s not right
That you still keep me locked to your shadow
Where no one else sees
All the marks that you left on me
Are fading away, but I’m still here
Trying to find something new
While I’m stuck here
Following you like a fool

I don’t mean to state the obvious
And I know you don’t see what all the fuss is
But when the options are torture or hell
I’ll take the beating knowing at least you are well

And yes I do have trouble letting go,
But now I’ve given up all my control
And how will I get out from under your rule
An iron thumb will never release a fool

But it’s not fair, and it’s not right
You get comfort in someone else’s arms
Then you come home to me
I get loneliness, I get nothing
But the fact that you’re alive
And I’m the selfish one?
No I am the fool

Blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Yeah, blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Why don’t you blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me

Let’s break the cycle, stop it in its tracks
I have no solution, you’ll never budge
I’ve got to find something new, get out of here
And stop shadowing you like a fool
