I'll Stand Aside

I'm causing problems. I love you enough to leave.
I can see that I'm causing you problems. 
I can see that my presence causes stress and pain.
I don't mean to be annoying.
I don't mean to get in your way.

Maybe you felt bad for me at first
and came to my aid.
I know I'm not the worst,
But I am tired of this charade.

I can see I'm not helping you
No matter how hard I try.
Everything that I do
Ends up not being right.

It's got to be me.
That much is plain.
So I should leave
Because I don't want to be in the way.

I'll stand aside
And let you be happy.
I've got nothing to hide
Because I love you dearly.
