You Chose Sadness...For You AND Me

Why aren't I good enough for you?
I hurt so bad inside...for myself AND for you.
It hurt so bad to see her hurt you that way.
I know I hurt you sometimes, even though I tried my best not to.
But I could never hurt you the way she did...and the way she will again.  
We both know it's coming.
I hated it.  Sitting there, seeing the pain in your eyes, wishing so bad that I could take it all 
Knowing that I could if you'd let me, if you'd give me that second chance.
I love her to death, but I'm a firm believer that cheaters are the only people who never 
deserve that second chance.  
Once a cheater, always a cheater I say.
Never thought I'd see the day.
The one where you openly take the road that will only lead to heartache and pain.
I told you before, I'll never tell you "I love you" unless I mean it.  And I meant that.
She tells you that, but the words mean nothing, she openly admits that in her writing.
Now I am powerless to stop your pain.
Because no matter what, I can't stop the pain we both know will come.
I won't go back to you again.
It'll hurt me to see your tears.
To know that your heart's breaking.
At the same time, you'll be getting a taste of your own medicine, and for a second I'll bask in 
the glory of knowing you're hurting as bad as I did.
You could have had happiness, but you chose sadness.
Remember that when the inevitable happens.
Could've had happiness...yeah, I may screw up here and there, but baby, nobody's perfect, 
not even you.  And even though I'd screw up, I could NEVER cheat on you.  You mean too 
much to me to ever do it.  I'd leave you for someone else if it came down to it, but NOT be 
with you AND someone else.  And yeah, it might hurt for awhile, but trust this, it wouldn't 
near as bad as the slap to the face you're gonna get from her.
No, she won't literally slap you, but when she cheats on you again...after she did it right in 
your face, right under your nose the last time, DON'T come crying to me...remember that 
the sadness and pain you feel is what you chose...for you AND me.
