It’s more scary
When you say you wont leave me
It’s more painful
When you leave after you promise
It’s more heartbreaking
When you say I’m special
But leave me for someone else

Don't tell me I'm pretty
Tell me that I'm passionate
That I have drive
Tell me that I make you laugh
That I know how to make your day better
Don't tell me I seem nice
Tell me that I'm kind and compassionate
Tell me that I'm not afraid to dream and to dream big
Don't tell me I'm perfect
Tell me the you love me despite my flaws
That you want to spend the rest of your life with me
Don't tell me I'm beautiful
Tell me that you'll be faithful and forever true

Even if you believe you’re not enough
What you’re doing isn’t enough
It is,
Even if it’s only for today
That’s good enough
You can’t put quantity on something like “enough”
Because every enough is different
Your enough is not someone else’s enough,
And their enough shouldn’t be your enough
Your enough is enough
Enough is enough
Let yourself rest
Because everything you’ve done
Is good enough
So don’t tire yourself,
By repeating it
; sometimes enough is enough.

The ones who always leave me
are the ones I want to stay
The ones who care so deeply
are the ones I push away

Why do I still like him?
Even when he doesn’t
Why do I still keep hoping?
For something to happen
Why do I still care?
When he clearly doesn’t
Why does he not like me?
Is it because I’m not her?
how can I not like him?

At least say something.
Please don't leave without saying anything,
It causes me pain that you won't have to witness.
But it makes me wonder,
Did I do something wrong?

aye-way
she won't stop crying
she says you did her wrong

she saw right through your lies
but she still chose to play along

now she is bruised
she sings an irregular song

now she is empty
because, with all her love, you have gone.
- a broken heart.
