-Deserve It?-

here, take my pain, you deserve it more
I should not be so selfish.
should not deprive you, of what is rightfully yours
when you smile you look elfish.

my hand is tired, of holding this out to you
sorry I took so long
but it is yours, it's true
why was I so wrong?

take it, you sure did earn it
this bet I did not win
I knew this would turn to shit
my life of you and sin
