I wonder if she enjoys being in your arms as much as I did
Does she know how good she has it?
Does she adore you as well as I did?
I never tasted lips so sweet before
Does she feel the same
Or are you somehow playing for second place?
She has thousands more nights by your side
Does she know what I would give for just one more?
I hope she treasures you
I hope she doesn’t take for granted
What was so precious to me.
I wear your t shirt to bed.
Let all the memories of you
Fill my head.
I dream up fantasies of what we could be
We’re probably not even right for each other
but aren’t you dying to try?
Don’t you want to see if we can reach the sky?
I love you from afar
because up close I start to see
too many cracks
It’s so easy to love things
that are light and pretty
It’s so hard to stop myself
from running when it gets
heavy and dark.
I’m driving down the road
that would bring me to your house
if I reached the end
But I turn right
like I have the last few months
Wishing I could forget you
and the way to your house.
I don’t think this is going to work.
Because you are you
and we are us.
And we don’t work as well together as I had hoped.
Because you can’t decide on what you want
and I deserve someone who is sure about me.
She’s the type of girl you still think about six months later
after she’s fought for you
after you cancel on her for the fifth time
after you’ve taken her for granted.
when you can’t find anyone else who wants to take care of you
when no one cares to hear about that song you dance to in the car
when you can’t find anyone else to stand up as your advocate as you tear yourself down.
She’s the type of girl you never thought would leave
so you treated her that way and funny enough that’s the reason she left.
And now your sorry ass can’t stop thinking of way to get her back.
We are not a love story
and we are not a lesson.
We were just two people wasting time.
Comfortable in the in -between
hiding from our truths.
You didn’t love me
and I didn’t want to love you
You’re scared of good things happening
because they always get ripped from you
and you have a devil in your ear telling you
you don’t deserve it. Remind me to kiss the woman
who brought you into this world with deaf ears.
Everyone tells me I should walk away
says you’ve got too much going on to handle.
I don’t know why that doesn’t send me running
but I do know I have a heart big enough to hold you inside.
I know you’ll make it through
and it won’t always be this heavy.
You never deserved this pain
but it will make you the strongest man one day.
You have so much good to still give
so come on baby, just live.
