SO BLIND
by Selia Qynn, 12/2/91

I sit here reading the bitter words you wrote.
Once upon a time has ended on a sour note.
We had words. We put up walls, and now we're hiding out.
Emotions rise and tempers fly, and love gives in to doubt.
Baby, I still don't know why we do the things we do;
Wasting time in anger when I could be loving you.
And we just stand there waiting for the other one to start;
Looking on through guarded eyes to watch it fall apart.

Sometimes I wish I could have said the things I didn't say.
To think of what a fool I've been to let the moment slip away.
But then I know that some things are better left unsaid.
To think of what a fool I've been while my heart without my head
Just moved along, all along and so blind.

I tried my best to dedicate myself to you.
Then I realized it was me who was untrue.
And not to you, my dear, but only to myself.
I could not be the one for you and still be who I am.
I cannot hide my discontent, I'm guilty of the same.
You won't be who I need you to, and there's just myself to blame.
Still, I hope you won't be too unkind. Can't say we didn't try.
It never is a pretty thing, not seeing eye to eye.

Sometimes I wish I could have said the things I didn't say.
To think of what a fool I've been to let the moment slip away.
But then I know that some things are better left unsaid.
To think of what a fool I've been while my heart without my head
Just moved along, all along and so blind.
