Please don't say you love me,

I don't want to hurt you.

-

Please don't say you need me,

I will not be there for you.

-

Please don't say you hate me,

I don't really care.

-

Please don't lie to me,

I will never trust you.

-

Please don't say you'll leave me,

I will pack your things.

-

Please don't threaten me,

I'll hold you to your word.

-

I'm sorry I'm not what you want,

but I never wanted you.

-

I'm sorry that I've lied to you,

but you've only lied to me.

-

I'm sorry that I left,

but you never stayed.

-

I'm sorry that I hurt you,

when you pulled back your fist.

-

I'm sorry that you're weak,

but not that I am strong.

-

I'm sorry that you've lied,

but not that I have too.

-

I'm sorry that you need me,

when I never needed you.

-

I'm sorry that you left me,

but not that I left you.

-

I'm sorry that you hate me,

when I never hated you.

-

I'm sorry that you loved me,

when I never did love you.
