i heard you say a lot of people tend to let you down / i thought what a shame you haven't learned by now / that ice takes so long to form and only seconds to break / even under careful steps and cautious, well-intentioned weight / in the car back to chicago, i wanted to know you / you wanted to know me closer than i knew / when i slept beside you, i turned my face away / we both knew it felt wrong, we did it anyway / i don't know if i know what it means to love someone so much that you'd do anything / not just to keep them from leaving, but just to make them happy with nothing in return / yeah, i am just too selfish for this selfless kind of work / and when i heard you say a lot of people let you down / well i thought i feel the same way / but i am wondering now if that's just a reflection of the letting down i've done / and with steps i thought were cautious, i broke through the ice, i've sunk / in the car back to chicago i wanted to know you / more than anything i wanted you to know me / and we both wound up broken as typically we do / and i'm sorry if you loved me and i never loved you
