What happened to the days,
When I thought you were mine,
And I thought I was yours?

I went around thinking: I had it made.
That I didn’t have to worry about being alone.
You know why?
Because I thought I had everything together

But I was wrong to think that.
It was stupid of me to let it get that far.

It’s strange,
I thought I would love you no matter what,
And I thought you’d be the same.

But looking back,
I can tell now,
That everything you told me,
What you said about love.
Was all a lie.

To be honest,
I can’t see a time when what you said mattered.

The words that rolled off your tongue
Were twisted and delicious.
Only once did I actually fall for them.
And now I know it was nothing but a lure

How quickly it was that I let myself be apart your sick games.
How slowly it took to tear myself away from you.

I don’t know if I have the power to keep you out of my mind.
Or if I really want to.

But I know that as long as you are still in my life,
And you are still breathing,
You will always have a place in my heart.

As horrible as that may sound,
And as stupid the concept may seem.
I still love you
