No one else but myself

So many questions weighing
heavily on my mind
How could I have been so foolish?
How could I have been so blind?
Allowing my heart to ignore the signs
It such a shame that I have got
no one else but myself to blame
Now that I am falling apart
With nothing to show for loving you 
but a broken heart

This situation seems so unreal
Still can’t believe I was head over heel
loving everything about you
Because look at me now,
hating the way you make me feel
Hating everything you put me through
I’m like a bird caught in midflight
Frozen under your spotlight
Loosing me to you

I was comfortable in my skin
Until I let you in
You got me stressing, 
second guessing myself
Confusing thoughts in my head
Wondering was it something 
I did or said
to make you change?


I let you break through my defense
Didn’t see through your pretense
Until your mask became undone
Your lies tore us apart
It was all an act from the start
Now the scene is over
The curtains drawn
You are gone

It is such shame
that I have got no one else
but myself to blame
Now that I am falling apart
With nothing to show for loving you
but this broken heart
