Differently

Whatever I did was wrong 
I knew that all along  
You just shook your head 
I knew you played dead 
You never talked to me  
But wanted me to see  
That I should be  
Differently  

They say talk is silver and silence is golden  
But if you want to be understood your heart needs to be open  
And I know that it's not easy, yeah I know that it's hard  
But things should be different and we need a new start

Whenever I talk with heat and fire 
I feel deep down your desire is to disappear and cut the wire 
Or that you could clone yourself so you could leave 
And hide under the shelf for no one to see

And I'm sorry you wanted freedom and I tightened the belt  
But it was hard to let loose, yeah there was so much I felt

You just shook your head 
I knew you played dead 
You never talked to me  
But wanted me to see  
That I should be  
Differently  

Trying to break the ice for a few years now  
And eventually the weight of your love will make me bow  
And I will never be your ideal man  
But at least I tried everything that I can  

Talking to a wall  
Hold me when I fall  
You'd kick me when I crawl  
That's not love after all  
I mean, that's not love after all 

Whatever I did was wrong  
I knew that all along  
You just shook your head  
I knew you played
