How Did It Come To This


How did it come to this

I never wanted it this way

I just wanted you rest

On my shoulder

Feel you in my arms again

I could be your holder


I never meant for this

Never meant for you to cry

Just wanted you to stay

Didn’t mean for you to break inside


Seeing you here with

Tears streaming down your face

I know that in your heart

I’ll never have a place


So how did it come to this

How did we come to be

Was I so blind

I could not see (see, see)


We’ll never be together

I hurt you too many times

We’ll both be broken forever

Writing songs and worthless rhymes


To witness you right now

As painful as it is

I’ll stay with you in my mind

Every day every night


So how did it come to this

I never wanted it this way

I just wanted to have your hands

Intertwined with mine


I want to hold you tight now

Calm you while you stand close

But I know you’ll just shake more

You will never show


Me how it came to this

What we could’ve become

And we’ll both be thinking

(for the rest of our lives)


What did I do wrong

What could I have done

Why didn’t I confess my love

Where did I go wrong.


So how did it come to this

I never wanted it this way

How did we come to be like this

What happened to us?


I don’t understand

What did I do to you?

Did I screw up somewhere?

Please tell me what to do


Help me fix this mess

I want us to be right

Guide me through the darkness

I don’t want to fight


So how did it come to this

How did we come to be

Help me fix the mess

We became


How did it come to this

Somehow I must have hurt you

To be treated like this

Tell me what I did please girl

You are not always the one that did it wrong, everyone is fighting their own battles, and you may not be the cause of any of it.
