One Day Too Late
I came into your life this one day.
I waited for you to save me;
Waited forever and a day for you.
Would have waited forever and two,
But I could not bare it anymore.
Seeing her with you.
Everything was alright when,
I knew that you were there.
Even though I knew it was wrong.
I still did it again and again.
I’ve told you over and over,
It’s me or her not both.
You didn’t want to loose me,
But you couldn’t be the ******* to her.
I told you just the other day,
I felt like one of these days,
You were going to walk away,
And I was going to have to say,
“You were one day too late,
Now I’m stuck in Hell.”
You told me I would never see the day,
That you walked out on me.
We were doing nothing wrong,
Feeling for each other what was felt.
To you it’s not considered,
Unfaithful to want another.
It’s only considered unfaithful,
When you place your lips upon another.
To me if you were really in love,
You wouldn’t be saying to me,
How much you would love to date me,
If you were just set free.
Well, I see the future,
I’ve waited forever and a day,
But now my darling lover,
You’re one day too late,
It’s not the day you walk out on me,
It’s the night I walk out on the world.
I guess I’ll see you in Hell.
