I'm losing you.
A little more every day,
I'm losing you.

It doesn't matter if it's for
the best or it's just the way things go.
But the fact is
I'm losing you
and it hurts like hell.

The fire is burning out.
Now it's only a glimpse of
what it used to be,
extinguished by the water
from your tears and mine.

I can feel you slipping away
with every passing day.
And I don't deserve you.
I know this.

You've waited years for me.
Why should I hold you, when
you want so much more?
Why can't I let you go?

I can't let you go because
the corners of my eyes sting
when I think about someone else
loving you, holding you, giving you
everything you wanted from me.

I've tried so hard to be everything
you wanted me to be.
I gave you what was left of my heart.

But I know I can be replaced.
I see it in the eyes of your
pictures with others.
And maybe I should be replaced.

I'm just selfish enough that I
can't loosen my grip,
even when it seems like
I'm fading away, getting lost.

I still love you.
I still love you.
And I will love you until
I no longer love you,
or I see you happy without me...
and then I'll still love you.
Do you remember what it felt
like to be madly in love?
It was wonderful, wasn't it?
The days where you
could not get enough
of me
and I
could not get enough
of you...

We promised we'd try,
"whatever it takes,"
we said with tired, full hearts
and manic motivation.

Days turned into weeks,
and now we either
or we're
and life has
too much.

Now we say things just
because we can,
because we think the other one
loves us enough to never leave.

Love is a choice, I think.
I used to disagree when it
was being pushed in my face,
but sometimes it has to be.

Instead of saying the first thing
that comes to our minds,
maybe it's better to say nothing at all.

I'll pray to show you the love
that you deserve,
despite when you hurt me.

Love is more than passionate nights.

Love is respect.

And it's hard.
It's so damn hard.
You ask me to give you boundaries,
Which you will abide by.

And then you told me goodbye,
Proving to me you don't want my friendship.
You only want what you want.
I was never enough for you.
I will never be enough for you.

Thank you for confirming what I already knew.
This is why I don't trust.
Let me go.
