Sympathetic Character

Text písně Sympathetic Character

I was afraid you’d hit me if i’d spoken up I was
 afraid of your physical strength I was afraid
 you’d hit below the belt I was afraid of your
 sucker punch I was afraid of you reducing me
 I was afraid of your alocohol breath I was afraid
 of your complete disregard for me I was afraid
 of your temper I was afraid of handles being
 flown off of I was afraid of holes being punched
 into walls I was afraid of your testosterone


I have as much rage as you have
 I have as much pain as you do
 I’ve lived as much hell as you have
 and I’ve kept mine bubbling under for you


you were my best friend
 you were my lover
 you were my mentor
 you were my brother
 you were my partner
 you were my teacher
 you were my very own sympathetic character


I was afraid of verbal daggers I was afraid of the
 calm before the storm I was afraid for my own
 bones I was afraid of your seduction I was afraid
 of your coersion I was afraid of your rejection
 I was afraid of your intimidation I was afraid of
 your punishment I was afraid of your icy silences
 I was afraid of your volume I was afraid of your
 manipulation I was afraid of your explosions


I have as much rage as you have
 I have as much pain as you do
 I’ve lived as much hell as you have
 and I’ve kept mine bubbling under for you


[chorus]
 you were my keeper
 you were my anchor
 you were my family
 you were my saviour
 and therein lay the issue
 and therein lay the problem
