You saw that I was tame and vulnerable
I was easily breakable, destructible
You saw a sweet nature and a dash of innocence
You found a way to lie in elegance
With a twitch in your ear covered by the sadness in your eyes
Made me feel sorry and sympathetic for your life
My head was telling me to run
But my heart was sure this wasn't going to burn
It was delicate and fragile but I definitely should have ran
Just like the lion and the lamb
At first you made me feel loved
Just your presence alone felt enough
But then as soon as one thing changed
Your whole personality elapsed
And I didn't recognise you any more
I loved you more than I could ever scream
But now it's just like a movie on an old screen
Now I see what you put me through
I came out black and blue
But at least I'm still alive
I still have my own little thrive
I'm still me inside
You laid there, choking my air
Picking away at me so bare
When my breathing became harder
You sucked the air slower
And I didn't even know
But this is me forgiving you and letting you go
