Music & Lyrics by Alex Goettel

lyrics

It Started With You

It started with you,
Started where I first came to.
It’s just how we were made.
The feelings they don’t fade.

I thought I was safe,
Thought that I was in my place.
You never let it show,
Never let me grow.

But you understand me.

I fought for my life,
Living on the edge of a knife.
Knowing someday I would fall,
Knowing I could lose it all.

I waited for truth,
Waited just to hear from you.
I never understood,
Never knew I would.

But I understand you.

I’ve caused a lot of pain,
And I take my share of blame.

But it started with you.
