And you did a shitty job of trying to console.
This mess has blown up in my face
Because you only wanted to complicate
This simple thing we’d made.
I asked for more than stolen moments with you
You asked how many.
I begged for time to get to know you
You wondered why.
I only wanted your love
You needed to make sure I never got that far.
I watch you standing on my doorstep
With the rain pouring down your face
And your eyes plead with me to
But my broken heart knows
That the sweetest misery
Won’t be corrected by apologies
Nor by tears,
But by the power of love.
I push the door closed
Love was too simple for you back then
And too complicated for me now.
