You're all I wanted, but nothing I need
These present thoughts, should my own advice I heed?
Why do I try so hard for something that causes so much pain
Is it easier to suffer or to simply refrain?
I've sat too long at this stand-still
Emotions piled up like a land-fill
Constantly questioning why or how
I'm leaving it all in God's hands now
It will be easier for me to get over you
Easier for you not to feel so bad
Why try when there's no use trying to
Pretend something serious was what we had.
