i've got it finally figured out,

i know why i love you,

and it's not what i thought it was,

i was mistaken,

/0/

it's because you're the only one i'll ever get,

you're the only one that knows me completely,

you're my safety net,

and i feel like you're the one i'll come back to,

/0/

sure, my heartbeat isn't right sometimes,

but now i gotta let it go,

you're just a friend (a true friend),

and i'm leaving it the way it should be,

/0/

i knew it wouldn't work,

despite the signs,

it's just because you care about me,

just watching out for me,

/0/

and if you ever hold me,

it's because i needed someone,

you'll always be the one i can just 'depend on',

just another 'best friend',

/0/

you're everything i need,

but we should just leave it as is,

i've come to a realization,

it's never going to work,

/0/

i don't even want to try,

just talk to me,

like you usually do,

and give me those waves,

/0/

i'll get over it,

something's keeping me away from saying it anyways,

i couldn't tell you if i tried,

so let's pretend that i've always felt the same way,

/0/

i hope you didn't notice me trying something different,

all i wanted was someone to be with me,

and you were the most reliable,

so, please forgive me,

/0/

put your arm around me,

and walk beside you,

just like someone else would,

i'll be here forever,

/0/

i hope we'll be just the same,

we've always been a little awkward on my side,

but we've got something going,

i just want to let you know,

/0/

i'll take care of you,

like you did me,

you've had my heart for so long,

we've been through a lot,

/0/

i appreciate everything you've ever done,

the little things matter the most,

and you're such a sweet guy,

but it'll be the same, always,

/0/

if you want to prove me wrong,

then i won't stop you,

but i'm gone,

i'm gone.
