Whos lonely now?
Which one of us is suffering?
Whos in his cups?
Which one of us recovering?

Who likes to look at pictures
And cries, but way too late?
Who doesnt want to change a thing
Accepting it was fate

The wrong man was convicted
You know I did the deed
I thought that you would wait for me
Your wants I neednt heed

The wrong man lies beside you
And waits for you to wake
And all because I lacked conviction
The judgments my mistake

Whos breathless now?
Who only hyperventilates
Whod die for you?
Whos dying inside anyways

Which one of us is sunshine and
Which ones growing dim?
While two men dream of you at night
Do you just dream of him?

The wrong man was convicted
You know I did the deed
I thought that you would wait for me
Your wants I neednt heed

The wrong man lies beside you
And waits for you to wake
And all because I lacked conviction
The judgments my mistake

Whos lonely now?
Whos reaching out to no one?
Whos lonely now?
It takes one to know one

I changed my mind
You said that I could change it back
I wanted space and now
Change has fallen through the cracks

If Im again beside your body
Dont tell me where its been
Its cruel, unusual punishment
To kiss fingerprinted skin

The wrong man was convicted
You know I did the deed
I thought that you would wait for me
Your wants I neednt heed

The wrong man lies beside you
And waits for you to wake
And all because I lacked conviction
The judgments my mistake

Its my mistake
Its my mistake
Its my mistake
