Bring forth your heart and lay it down in front of me
Show me charades of promises and tell me of dreams you have planned
Waltz around and parade your undying affection
While I read between the lines and see beyond the colors
Your mardis gras of facade I see right through
See, the grand gesture and parade is not what I want
The simplicity, the truth, was what I was after
And those two, you failed hard at
She looks all sweet and kind
And though she may not read minds
She can tell the wrong sort
Even before they start to court.
They wonder why she’s single
Wonder why she wouldn’t mingle
They think of her as a mystery
And ask themselves if she’s in misery.
She’s calm unless provoked
She’s tough as nails when your feelings for her she’ll revoke
She won’t think twice to tell you otherwise
Boy, she will be your demise.
You can wait for as long as you want
Hoping you’ll change her mind, but you know you can’t
When she says “no”, that’s the final word
See, she battles dragons herself and doesn’t need you sword.
I tried to please him
Tried to be the one so he would stop searching
But I wasn’t what he was looking for
So he moved past me.
I guess I tried too hard
I guess I just wasn’t the right fit
I look back now and though I may not understand as much
I don’t regret having fallen for him once
See the sky?
It’s blue but it’s happy
See the river?
Its green but does not envy
The clouds are white and pure
But it can also be dark and heavy
Nature can be full of wonder
Full of emotions
They judge me
They tell me I’ve never truly felt love
Or been in love
But how would they know?
The dim witted often think they’re smart
They will never understand
And I won’t care
Because I know,
Heartbreak is all I’ve ever had
Every single day they tell me
And sometimes it hurts me
Because a single word can be hurtful
When every single time you are told
As if you do not feel a single emotion
As if you are not smart enough to understand
Because they think being single is a disappointment
When truth is, their single mindedness
Is the real problem
Didn’t he know that when I said we should be for each other
It was not just a joke?
Half of it was hoping
Most of it was true
And didn’t he know my feelings weren’t a lie?
Couldn’t he see?
It was all half meant
He knew my name
And spoke it well
And for all the times we spent together
I’m the only one that fell.
Though the feel is great
It’s such a shame
I felt too much for him
But he only knows my name.
I told myself it never was
Told myself he never did
Gave up hope and my feelings for him altogether
Thinking, he and I were not meant once or forever.
I told myself I was the only one who fell
The only one who felt it
But circumstances reveal something else entirely
He loved me after all, wholeheartedly.
And circumstances became the reason why
He had to give me up and say goodbye
You can’t impose it
Or simply dispose of it
You can’t wish for it to happen
Or force it
It happens when it does and it’s a great thing when it comes your way
But how can I put this simply
In words easily understood?
Don’t force me, because if I don’t like it
I never will
