I know, I felt it too much…I was fooled by the feeling.
Ignored all the warnings and turned my head from reason.
I believed in fate like a silly kid dreaming.
Well, you finally proved to me that there’s nothing left but healing.

I knew the timing was unfair, but put trust in a passion
Thought that perhaps this journey was something worth having
For what it’s worth, I loved the love I hoped for
Given a chance I’m sure we would have outlasted the confusion

Yes… I’ve cried, ignored, fought and questioned.
It’s hard to see you as some one different from what I believed in.
It’s taken me a long time to get here and I’m not quite certain
But it’s something I must do to get over my hurting.

Who you are is exactly the person that you will attract
And that’s probably why you let the good ones go and you don’t look back
I wanted to be the one, not the one that got away
But you didn’t want to know me, now there’s no need for that

Love, in real life, is more than this game that you’re playing
When you finally open your eyes you will see what you’re missing
But because you wont… I know you can’t give me what I’m needing
I feel sorry for you and the excuses that you’re making

You never let go…..You just try to move on
Or at least I know I said that once in a song
I want to forgive us both… I want the anger to be gone
It’s not fair for me to hold on to this alone

I heard if you love some one you have got to set them free
And if they come back to you, it was meant to be
I hope that’s just comfort while this hurts and feels guilty
But, good bye my love.. I say good bye to you and me

Good bye my love, I will always carry you in my heart
All those things we should have said that we never said
All those things we should have done that we never did
All those “should haves” between us is what broke us apart

Good bye my love, I let go and wish you nothing but the best
The strangers we’ve become is something I won’t protest
The temptation to think about you is something I will resist
You got what you asked for…you deserve nothing less

This is Nice
Maybe a little editing, but I enjoyed the words. It would be nice if the old crew here could read some of the newbies work and critique it sometimes. Your words sounded about like mine years ago. Today is The Day! It's hard, but you will make it. Never accept anything!

Thanks for all of your comments.. I love the advice and interpretations!! It's what makes this fun :)

This particular piece is actually based on a friend who spent the last 6 months trying to end an unhealthy habit....(his hang ups)... of listening to an ex...(again his hang ups/his idea)... profess his love to her.. (when all she wanted was to end as friends)...even though he would never follow through and has chosen to be with someone else whom he degrades...(ie,"who you are is who you attract").. Then finally she saw through the stupid fairy tale and realized some people are just selfish and immature and at some point you need to find your own closure and end it...even if you have to tell it to yourself!! "you got what you asked for"= "be happy I'm gone, it's what you stop bothering me at your convenience when you think you miss me".

And last..."I want to forgive us both"= "I'm letting go with or without you"

I am a serious hopeless romantic...but sometimes....actions speak louder than words. You can only try so hard to make something work. It take two and respect and honesty.......

Life does change...Love doesn't!! will always be a powerful, much needed feeling..Ah, true love :)
