"You can be a victor without having victims and you can stand tall without standing on someone"

I thought you were my Romeo and that, dare I say, I was your Juliet
You were like a drug to me, something I had to have. An asset.
But now you're gone and my life is in shock
My body has gone into airlock

There are tears in my eyes and on my pillow
Your leaving was my own personal death-blow,
It left my heart bleeding and aching
It may be fair outside but to my eyes it's always raining.

Why can't he love me? I ask myself over and over
But in truth, I know the answer. I'm unlovable, a loser
His strong arms will never wrap tenderly around me again
So I must make due with the memories I now cling to from way back then

Whenever I think about him I can't help but wonder,
Is he too putting on a role for the world like an actor?
Trying to hold himself together but his careful guard sometimes cracks
And all the feelings of rejections take on his dormant heart and attack

But I know better than to believe this
I know he will not arrive at my empty castle to awaken me with a kiss
For I am not a princes waiting in a meadow
Just a pitied girl who lost her Romeo
