For a short while you made me feel as though
I actually meant something to someone
like I was finally good enough
it almost felt as if you genuinely cared
but when I dug a little deeper and looked a just little closer
you weren't even there
and I find it funny because you had nothing to do with me
but for me?
I would've done anything for you
who am I kidding
I did everything for you
I cried for you
I bled for you
I would've laid down my life just to see your smile
all because your smile meant the world to me
and I tilted my head in adoration at it
but sitting up straight
I realized that your smile wasn't a smile
but more a mischievous grin
that was drawing me back in
and at that moment I knew I couldn't win
that it had gone too far and there was no return
as I swayed from a necklace of rope
are you happy now?
