on / off lyrics – snow patrol

i couldn’t believe what i was seeing
faces all screwed up like what i’d done
i didn’t mean to hurt you so much
i knew it would hurt you but not like this
we all make a mess from time to time, dear
but it’ll take me a lifetime to get this cleared
somebody muttered something under their breath
but i let on like i was a little deaf
n*body’s perfect, that’s what i say
no one has hurt me so much you say
i’m sorry
running away seemed like the easy thing to do because i wanted time
to put a smile back on your face
for once nothing’s missing and i feel fine
i was afraid to tell you some things
but some things all find a way to get told
hearing it from the lips of somebody else
must have knocked the wind out of your sweet chest
