Have you ever felt yourself falling then wake before you hit the ground?
Well that's how I feel baby, whenever you're around.
The fear of what is below me, keeps me from letting go of the past
because, if I keep falling for you I know it just won't last.
You let her hurt you, and I know she cut you straight to the bone.
Even though you lie, I still know her memory won't leave you alone.
You act like you care for me and that maybe I am of some worth.
but, then you seem guarded and it keeps sending me back and forth.
Whatever she's done to you, it overwhelms all the love I can give.
It's just impossible to win a heart, where her memory still lives.
It could be the timing but, we're not meant for a relationship.
Even though we won't work, Can I give you a small tip?
Clear your heart of her bitter and overpowering ghost
It's hard for other's to feel welcome where her memories' the host.
I know that I once said I had only wanted to have fun,
but, I never expected to feel this way again about anyone.
I am not stupid I know when it's the time for me to bow out,
I don't expect this to hurt you because, I'm not what your about.
I remember, I told you, I wouldn't and couldn't say goodbye,
but now I can see if I don't you'll continue to make me cry.
She still owns and haunts your heart with no room for me there.
So I have to get to walking away because, I am really scared.
I didn't expect to fall for you in the blink of an eye.
So I had to tell you now, I am not good at telling lies.
We've both been hurt badly but, I can't stand this pain.
That's why I am bowing out at first sight of "nothing here to gain".
