Mess (with Ben Folds Five)

There was a time when I had nothing to explain Oh, this mess I have made But then things got complicated My innocence has all but faded Oh, this mess i have made And I don't believe in God So I can't be saved All alone as I've learned to be In this mess I have made All the untested virtue The things I said I'd never do Least of all to you I know he's kind and true I know that he is good to you He'll never care for you more than I do But I don't believe in love And I can't be changed All alone as I've learned to be In this mess I have made the same mistakes Over and over again There are rooms in this house that I don't open anymore Dusty books of pictures on the floor That she will never see She'll never see that part of me I want to be for her What I could never be for you But I don't believe in God So I can't be saved All alone as I've learned to be In this mess I have made
