butterfly affect

I fought for your love i sacrificed my tears
only to have you near for a day
it was a butterfly affect
taking hold on me 

i let you go because you can do better i see
without me in your life you can be happy 
so i act as if i never knew you when we pass by
but inside i cry

i long for you but to see you on your own doing good
selfless love i give to you 
your better off without me even though my love is deeper than the sea

in another lifetime you were my juliet and i your romeo
but in this life i struggle and act as you i did not know
only to keep you safe and away from heartache

i love you from a distance
i know to approach you would only cause you pain 
butterfly affect i keep on walking only the memories of you in the past life
