Torn

Maybe regret is making me see,
That I cannot be happy, cannot be free,
You don't show me love, you never agree,
And I deserve better than how you treat me.

And oh, sweet friend, you could have been more,
Because now I am stuck in emotional war.

Sometimes I wish I had left you alone,
I didn't want my life set in stone,
I could have found a much safer home,
But now I just feel I am out on my own.

And oh, sweet friend, you could have been more,
My feelings are still much too strong to ignore.

I must not pretend I am happy this way,
For you are the hunter, and I am the prey,
I think about leaving you every day,
But with you is the place that I know I will stay.

And oh, sweet friend, you could have been more,
Now my heart is in tatters upon the cold floor.

You ignore every promise I ask you to make,
I know I have made an awful mistake,
In staying with you, when I could have escaped,
Now I know I am ready to break.

And oh, sweet friend, I could have been yours,
But I don't want to belong to a man anymore.
