You Made Me This Way

Look at me.

How can I sleep
So soundly in bed
When the demons awaken
Every night in my head

I was so much better
Before I met you
So to our end I am thankful
And our beginning I'll rue

People see me in photos
And then look at me now
I know exactly who happened
But I'll still get asked how

I thought we were laughing
Together, not at me
Now those moments of fun
Make me cry at your glee

You encouraged my worst
I thought I was happy
Now I know I was wrong
Won't you look at me?
