So you stumbled and you fell and blamed it on me
Well I guess you might as well I mean who’d believe?

Always knew you had it in ya
Never could get past your pride
It’s been that way since I met ya and I bet ya never tried
But I was always on your side

So now you’re back on top; all hail the queen
The applause it never stops, honey that’s your scene
What’d ya tell them all about me?
Pretty obvious you lied
Not the first time you broke my trust and I just let it slide
Cuz I was always on your side

Didn’t I give you what you needed?
You always were up for a fight
All my warnings went unheeded
I was defeated and denied
But I was always on your side

When there’s no more happy endings
When there’s nowhere left to hide
Maybe then you’ll remember your defender and how he tried
Cuz I was always on your side


from The Honeyed & the Bittersweet, Volume I, released July 5, 2019
