You say that you want me to stay
As you walk me out the door
You say that you love me
As you look at her
You say it’s all you
That you have to change
Is all that you need
Don’t you see
Is all you’ve ever
Taken away from me
Look at my lips
They will never
Be yours to kiss.
Stare at my waist
Will not go
Anywhere near that place.
Call me Sweetie
For I will
Live up to that name.
Diminish my abilities
You came into my life,
When it was least expected.
And then you left,
As quickly as you came.
Now I am left here –
Wondering if this is all a game.
I hope you see me when I’m no longer there.
I hope you realize what you just lost as I walk away.
I hope you think about me all the lonely nights,
when I could’ve been right there.
I hope one day you finally open your eyes to everything that was standing right in front of you.
Why couldn’t I have been enough right there in that moment of time?
That last moment that we looked into each other’s eyes,
I knew I would never see you again.
You didn’t look back,
they never do.
Now all I can hope is to haunt you in your dreams –
So you can feel the pain I feel right now.
I loved you now and I will love you then,
but love will never convince you to spread your wings and fly.
And I can’t live my life stranded on the ground.
She did always say I remained her of a caged animal because my body may have been sitting right in front of you but my mind was all over the world.
