i get sad

when will the joy come back?

painful mementos

sitting here in the living room we built together
staring at everything that was supposed to make me smile

those roses lost their beauty
those earrings won't be worn
those pictures seem too happy
that book just breaks my heart
those dates celebrate the worst day of our love

i don't know how to feel that warmth i used to feel
when i could feel the love in our house in every breath
when thinking of you made my day
when my whole life seemed to glow
when i knew that you loved me with all my heart

i want everything to go back to how it used to be
when i was enough and i never doubted our forever

why did you have to go and break my heart :(
you were supposed to be the only person who never would hurt me
you had every ounce of my trust and i never thought you were anything less than perfect
i can feel that my walls are back up to where they used to be
and i don't know if you love me enough to try to take them down.

you wanted to leave
and i don't believe it when you say
that you'd thought it would work anyway.

you were willing to let me go
until you realized what my going meant
'til you realized that i would leave you
before you could leave me.

you say you didn't mean it
but i know that you lied
because the way i thought you loved me
you would have never even tried.

i don't trust you to love me
but i'll buy your lies
'cause i can't let you go now
and i wouldn't last those miles.


i can feel it on the clock now
our countdown has begun
until i'm not enough again
and you decide to run.

you say you want forever
you say there's no goodbye
but i can feel that hint of doubt
that hides behind your eyes

you say that you weren't thinking
but you can't undo those steps you made
one day you'll wake up tangled in me
and wish you hadn't stayed.

i can only hope i'll be stronger then.

need you

i miss you every time you leave me,
for a minute
or for a day
either way, there's no change
in how deeply i miss you
