i'm going to fight for her
to keep her by my side
you don't deserve her;
her love, her effort, her dedication.
if break her again, or force
her into this kind of situation,
i'm going to take her from you
because she deserves happiness,
love, kindness and someone
who can stand up for her; who
will stand up for her.
i will take her from you,
because she is my sister,
my best friend, my soul mate mermaid.
i can see them standing together,
holding each other's hand in the summer
and i want to tell them to leave, that
this is wrong.
i want to tell her of his fury,
of the force he will inflict on her children.
i want to tell him that she's isn't right,
that they will have fights and things,
that they will forever regret, will happen.
i want to tell them that if this happens,
they will put the kids into unhappiness
and their fights will affect the whole house.
i want to tell them that if this didn't happen,
they could meet people better for themselves
but i don't. i am selfish and i let them go,
i let them meet and hold hands and fall
madly in love. i let them fall out of love,
and i let the bad things happen
because i want to live, and i know
that love is just another person
each moment passes by,
and i can barely pretend to care.
i watch them pass with less
emotion than i watch the street below,
wondering when will my time
to live arrive?
each moment stretches out,
around me, and closes in,
but it's no different than yesterday
and the day before.
as the moments suffocate me,
they make me wonder:
when will my time
to live arrive?
you pretend to miss me
but i know you better than you think
i know the giveaways when you're lying
the words you use to avoid the truth
the pretending needs to end
i can't be your last call anymore
i don't want to be your second thought
when you're planning things
