The Wrong Way

All I needed was a little sign
I swear, sometimes my heart can be so blind
Drifting down this lonely highway with no direction
There was a lack of affection, no dedication yet I still yearning for your attention

Didn't know that I was capable of hurt
Even though you did so much dirt
Gave you a taste of your own medicine
Guess a spoonful was too much because you whispered, "it is embarrassing"

The saying goes, "Time heals all wounds" 
In our case, from the beginning this relationship was doomed
You assumed that you had me wrapped around your finger
These feelings wasn't strong enough to linger
We can agree that we both of came out as winners
