You came along to kiss away the boy in me,
To show me what happens when you love with no compromise,
You were the most painful and beautiful thing I’ve ever met

I tried fixing you instead of kissing every beautiful scar
Instead of caressing every jagged edge, on which I gladly would have sliced my hands if you’d let me

Had I realized what heartache does to people, I wouldn’t have been so callous,
I wouldn’t have lashed out, I would have thought twice
I’m sorry it cost two broken hearts for me to learn
I’m sorry I’m blind in everything but hindsight

I wish you could have met the man you made me,
And maybe we both could reflect on years gone by
