I Knew I Couldn't Trust You - Silverstein

I knew I couldn't trust you back when we were kids
You sold me out, you ran and hid
From all your problems, can't even face your friends
Your best friends

You're holding something in tonight
And I can tell you're not all right
Your poker face concealing
All the cards that you're not dealing

Cross your arms, avert your eyes
You're like a child ashamed to cry
The words inside your head
When I find out, you'll wish you said

I let you down so many times
But I can't ever tell you this
There's no forgiving it
I promised you I'd always be there
But that couldn't be less true
It's the worst thing I could do

You're gonna bet it all on black
And when it's gone you'll want it back
'Cause truth don't mix with reason
And cheating's the ultimate treason

And I could see through you like glass
Slither around below the pass
Garden of Eden burning
It's a bitter fruit, you won't discern it

I let you down so many times
But I can't ever tell you this
There's no forgiving it
I promised you I'd always be there
But that couldn't be less true
It's the worst thing I could do

My loss, your gain
It didn't have to be this way
Across my face
[Incomprehensible]

Holding the pain, we're better off this way
We don't abstain, we're better off this way
Friends are in vain, we're better off this way
Better off this way

I knew I couldn't trust you back when we were kids
You sold me out, you ran and hid
From all your problems, can't even face your friend
Your best friend

I let you down so many times
But I can't ever tell you this
There's no forgiving it
I promised you I'd always be there
But that couldn't be less true
It's the worst thing I could do
