I know you don't love me lately. I barely love me too
I put you in situations that take a lot of getting use to.. I use to
seem to have it all figured out, I'm still learning
you were all I cared about at one point and now you're hurting
And I just still can't decide if this is more befitting or deserving.
I wish that I was selfish, so that meeting you and loving you was something I never dealt with
But I will never know it, I will never take the time to sit back and wonder " what if"
what if you were ever mine, What if I became a vision , Instead of an option I became a decision.
And I know you dont love me but you only know me now
If you ever met me back then. you'd prefer to love me now
But I been through hell and back, its been hard. I think Its obvious
but love me for the fact that I traded in my negativity for the positive.
you dont love me, i wouldn't love me either
but I know that you think of me, and im still a believer
if we feel we don't deserve it then we never take the time
if we feel it's not deserving , we consider it a lie
Just a moment for your thoughts. and the promises you're breaking
if moving on is never taught, a mistake is all we're making
a bridge will always burn, until you learn to love me
this is just a lesson learned.
