How could I be so blind
And not see this coming?
Acting as if I'm surprised,
Like I didn't know what was happening.
How selfish could I be?
By not putting some of the blame on me.
How could she be the problem?
When I'm the one who claimed I couldn't see.
She tried to tell me what was wrong;
But I acted as if I'm not hearing.
Then I got the nerve to be mad at her
Simply because she's mad at me for not listening.
I treated her unfair
Yet I was always telling her, she's my equal.
Allowing my insecurities to treat her
In a way that made her feel real little.
Knowing in my heart she was faithful
And that her love was unconditional and pure.
I just couldn't comprehend why
I was acting as if I was so unsure.
I messed up real bad
Now my whole existence is a mess.
Trying to exist without her
Is like living without answers, trying to guess.
How foolish was I?
To allow our relationship to die.
Knowing she tried
I can't even look at myself in the eye.
Tears I cried…
Is worst than the devil in disguise.
So now I find myself without her
Cause I only thought about Me, Myself, and I.
