touched by another

i love the girl
but hate her ways
as we say the same words
but don’t mean the same things
blue like the ocean
black like the night
we’re bruised at the soul
from another vain fight

then i think of her soft skin 
as touched by another and i’m bitter
my envy cuts deep
and i think of her smiling 
with me not on her mind and it’s hitting
it’s raining on me

i can hate you if i want to
i can love you too
you can’t dictate the terms
when you’re telling half truths
so i shake when i leave
’cause i’m struck by you gone
and i cry but i tell you
i’m fine and move on

then i think of her soft skin 
as touched by another and i’m bitter
my envy cuts deep
and i think of her smiling 
with me not on her mind and it’s hitting
it’s raining on me

i shake when i leave
’cause i’m struck by you gone
and i cry but i tell you
i’m fine and move on
