True Feelings

At the start of us, I would have never thought to play you But come to find out that’s all you thought about Never once did you really intend to remain true I wish I would’ve known, because time is a precious gift See, I feel bad for not calling to check on you but I just want you to get a taste For four years, this is exactly what you did to me not even thinking twice And even though you’ve given me multitudes of pain, the time I gave wasn’t a waste Now do you see how wrong you were for your lies, and the game you played? Everyone told me people like you just don’t change I felt that I was strong enough, I felt as though I could love you enough I could’ve cared less if you forever got paid minimum wage My love for you was deeper than any material desire, or any self-seeking goal But now I look at myself, and there was a part of me you ruined with your lies It irritates me, even annoys me to know that someone I desperately loved betrayed me Every time I think about everything we’ve been through, another piece of me dies Why can’t you answer to the chaos you put in my life, and why can’t I just forgive? It is your fault that nothing will be the same, and it was you who lost out in this game You didn’t think I could ever act the same as you, deceive you the same way But you turned me into somebody just as lame What do you say now? I guess it’s finally your turn to be betrayed
