to the person who tore me apart,
I felt it every day, it's all the same
when our love became fiction
It was a helpless pinch that doesn't leave
like ice cubes grinding at your front teeth
I was happy in my walls where I found myself in yours
I fall for you
over and over, over and over
I try to live without you
but I knew that I was afraid to leave you on your own
I told you I'd be there if you fall
I always put you right back on your feet
just so you could take advantage of me
I took it so far to keep you close
when you said you loved me
and you needed me
all I wanted was for you to give me your misery, all of it give it to me
I told myself I can hold onto it for you, it's not a problem for me
I wanted to save your heart
every day, I turn the pages
just to change my mood
but every chapter reads the same
It was hard to make it through
your words weren't enough
even then you never hear a word I say
one day you sat me down and said you don't want me anymore
you left me
standing on a corner, crying
feeling like a fool for trying
I wanted to erase our memory
I knew from the beginning of summer, I had to say goodbye to my heart
letting you go would be the hardest
so hello summer, goodbye to my heart.
