I forgot how happy it made me to see your name light up my phone,
The butterflies in my stomach,
The thought that maybe just this once you didn’t want to be alone,

The numbing in my face,
telling me how long you’ve been gone,
and all along maybe you knew,
I just couldn’t keep up the pace.

The lies, the love,
all of its lost,
Vanished into nothing like a magic trick,
And when you lie that’s what it cost.
We could have had everything, but instead I was left with less than I had before I met you. Oh well. You live and you learn, right?
