Rough is an Understatement

Written by: Kristopher Higgs

I knew you hated it then
When I said I wanted more than friends.
And when I spoke to you my heart
You disregarded it from the start.
But when I spoke those words to you,
You didn't know just what to do.
You took them in with such disdain  
And that caused me so much pain.
It was only you that I wanted to please
And that made it so much harder on me.
 
I tried so hard to pull away
To find someone to take my mind away.
I searched so desperately
Still knowing where my heart would be.
I tried my best to sever tries
To tell myself I wasn't the guy.
Oh it was rough for awhile,
Yeah things went numb after awhile.
Until I found myself right back to you.
 
Since then I've jumped so many hoops
And you've cut some ties loose.
Even though you still hold the strings
Along with so many other things
Like pictures of time that you onced cherished,
I can't let my love perish.
While I hope these memories will fade
The emotions will remain,
Murdering my dreams and leaving me with the stains
Until I found myself right back with you. 
 
I tried so hard to pull away
To find someone to take my mind away.
I searched so desperately 
Still knowing where my heart would be.
I tried my best to sever tries
To tell myself I wasn't the guy.
Oh it was rough for awhile,
Yeah things went numb after awhile.
Until I found myself right back to you.
