"I tell myself I don't need you, I tell myself enough to get through."
You stole my heart when you told me I was beautiful,
and I never wanted it back.
Maybe I was just the latest in a string of broken
hearts left behind. You run away, vicious words
trailing along at your heels.
You think I'm joking, you think I'm lying
you think and you're wrong.
Your honey sweet words that you had
finally convinced me to believe, I guess
you never meant what you said.
I'll tell myself that this storm of yours' will pass
but something tells me that you've already moved on
and that I'll never matter to you again.
You should have heard my heart
when you said you "felt the same way."
You should have caught the tears
I held back today, as I gazed outside
the foggy window into the rain.
Falling so heavy that I almost believed
they were snowflakes.
I almost believed you,
you almost had me there.
With your "people change" line
and witty ways of tricking my
easily manipulated faith in others.
Oh, why am I lying to myself?
You had me and you still do.
There's the truth, bare for everyone
to see even though you don't want
a soul to know, because then maybe it
would be easier to mistreat my feelings.
And perhaps I should be immature and
stupid for once in my life, and be cruel.
But I can't, that isn't me. Just like popularity
and endless monotonous voices of singers that
can't really sing aren't me.
You said, "you didn't know
me well enough."
I don't know you.
What happened to the person I knew?
(I want you back)
