I am not the girl you would want to settle down
I never want to settle.
Your mom and I are sure to get along
But I’m not staying, honey, so
Your entire family is sure to love me
But setting down isn’t something I forsee.
So boy, go get along
You and I just don’t belong
You can charm other girls with that sly smile
But not me
Tell them your jokes and they laugh mindlessly
But not me
They may fall for all your tricks
But me, no never
I have no words left to say
I’ve lost and used it all
I told you all I could and needed
Still, it’s no use
I have nothing to give
I will not ask you to stay
I ask no more from you
So expect no more from me
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.
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
I couldn’t love him for all the love he could give
I could not give him what he wanted
Or longed for
It’s hard to explain
I couldn’t love him for any and all reason
I do not hate him
I simply couldn’t
And just refused to
I matter not to you
You see me come and go
And it’s all right that I am blue
Because I matter not to you
I am no one, not anyone and so
It’s okay that you say “no”
Even if I hurt, yes, I hurt too
Still, I matter not to you
When did love become a chore?
When did effort became so tiresome?
When did happiness became scarce?
Music suddenly sounds stale
Nothing is making sense.
You drag your feet but get nowhere
And everything around you is darkness
When did these fall apart?
When did everything became such a chore?
I loved him
But we weren’t meant to be more than what we were
We had to part ways
And intersections we come across
A smile, familiarity
Friendliness and happiness
I was sad when we couldn’t be
But now, I could never be happier
