Love, I guess
Scrolling down my call log, seeing all these numbers.
Talking to all these boys got me stressed.
Filling ears with broken promises
Because I broke my promise..
So now I’m declining.
I found somebody to replace you.
A temporary high.
When I come down
All I see is you.
All I hear is you.
It’s been so long but I can still see your face.
Without a snapchat memory
Moving on just reminds me of you.
I didn’t express myself like I should’ve but that doesnt mean that I didn’t feel
You know that I’m a good person
You know that I feel
You acted as if you didn’t know.
I kinda feel like usher.
I got it bad.
I’m tired of feeling this way
Tired my brain replaying your voice of how you used to say my name
Tricking my nose thinking I smell your distinctive scent
Missing the feel of your warm embrace
Why did I let you go your own way
Sometimes I regret my decision more and more each day
This prideful battle I’ve lost
But freedom was more important to me
It was love for how we knew it
The best way we expressed it
But love didn’t keep us from going astray
