I Thought I Knew Things

YOUR PAIN, AND MINE

i cannot speak your pain
forgive the times i’ve tried
i thought i could explain
that’s why i’m on your side

forgive the times i’ve tried
thinking i knew best
that’s why i’m on your side
i’m better than the rest

thinking i knew best
but what i knew was small
i’m better than the rest
and i’m no good at all

yes, what i knew was small
until i heard you say
i’m not good at all
my pride got in the way

until i heard you say
your story wasn’t mine
my pride got in the way
i had to draw a line

your story wasn’t mine
i thought i could explain
i had to draw a line
i cannot speak your pain
