After You

With everything I could ever do,
How could I love anyone after you?

We talked
we laughed
We scoffed 
and on behalf of everyone 

Everyone that hated our pairing
All the rumors they were sharing
Every night together so daring

Every night together seemed so caring

Respect and trust make the pairing
Respect and trust come from sharing
Respect and trust require vulnerability
Which makes the process quite so daring

Amazing comversations that we spoke
Amazing conversations you thought jokes
The respect I gave you despite your faults
The respect you gave as jokes with insults

I took it all
I took the fall
I took the leap
a fall so deep

All you did was laugh
All you did was half
I tried so hard to be the best
but you could never be the rest

So...

With everything I could ever do,
How could I love anyone after you?
