Ben Folds — Mess lyrics

There was a time that i had nothing to explain
Oh, this mess i had made
But then things got complicated
My innocence has all but faded
Oh, this mess i have made

And i don't believe in god
So i can't be saved
All alone as i've learned to be
In this mess i have made

All the untested virtue
The things i said i'd never do
Least of all to you

I know he's kind and true
I know that he is good to you
He'll never care for you more than i do

But i don't believe in love
And i can't be changed
All alone as i've learned to be
In this mess
I have made the same mistakes
Over and over again

There are rooms in this house that i don't open any more
Dusty books of pictures on the floor

That she will never see
She'll never see that part of me
I want to be for her
What i could never be for you

But i don't believe in god
So i can't be saved
All alone as i've learned to be
In this mess i have made
