You're desperate to hold on,
But she's already gone.
Quoting the wrong words at the wrong time,
I wish you could see what I see.
Love is not a fight.
Adoration in her eyes,
I know she's steadfast.
I've got consistence from somebody
And she remembers every promise.
Holds me gentle as a baby butterfly,
I can feel her heart flutter.
I've never had much air,
But she can take my breath away,
Just by touching my hair.
I was searching in all the wrong places
Just for a trace of you.
Never lifted your fist,
You left me broken just the same.
And I thought it would kill me, leaving you.
I bit my nails to the quick instead of crying for you,
I'd been dying for you to love me,
Forgotten how to love myself.
I'm so afraid of pushing her away,
I sometimes feel like everything that happened between you and I was my fault,
But you pushed me away.
Tomorrow is my four month anniversary with Meghan. I've been faithful to her since before she even asked me out. I'm commited. By the time you and I had been together that long, I had left you and slept with somebody else. I take responsibility for my actions, but my leaving, has always been your fault. You think you can control her, maintain your morphine high that you get from her voice over the miles. But love isn't control and hiding from yourself in somebodies sweet words. You can hold tighter, she wasn't yours in the first place.
