Now That I'm Gone

You've broken my heart before 
and foolishly I let you back in 
I know I'm not strong, I'm weak 
But this time I can't let you win 

You never loved me as much as I loved you 
So why when I look at your face I feel so bad 
I wish you could've appreciated me as I did you 
Your excuse now is you didn't realize what you had 

You know how the saying goes 
You don't know what you have until it's gone 
How come I knew what I had all along? 
Now I must find my place where I belong 

I waited for you to change your ways 
Hoping you would so I could forget 
Immensely you have changed for the worse 
Remembering when we first met 

You've been my good friend for five years 
and my distant boyfriend for two 
I'll always love and be there for you 
No matter what I decide to do.
