    There was a time when I had nothing to explain
    Oh, this mess I have made
    But then things got complicated
    My innocence has all but faded
    Oh, this mess that 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 that 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
    So I can't be changed
    All alone as I've learned to be
    In this mess
    (Bridge)
    I have made the same mistakes
    Over and over again
    There are some rooms in this house that I don't
    Open anymore
    Dusty books and 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 that I have made
