Well, when you go So never think I'll make you try to stay And maybe when you get back I'll be off to find another way When after all this time that you still owe You're still a good-for-nothing I don't know So take your gloves and get out Baby, get out while you can When you go And would you even turn to say I don't love you like I did yesterday Sometimes I cry so hard from pleading So sick and tired of all the needless beating But baby when they knock you down and out Is where you oughta stay And after all the blood that you still owe Another time was just another blow So fix your eyes and get up Baby, get up while you can When you go And would you even turn to say I don't love you like I did yesterday Well, come on, come on When you go Would you have the guts to say "I don't love you like I loved you yesterday" I don't love you like I loved you yesterday I don't love you like I loved you yesterday
I'll admit I miss how things used to be. Hugs after runs Holding hands following slow dances Running to meet each other when we haven't been together in more than a few days It was all my sense of security Because nothing else could touch me Because when you whispered "I'll protect you" Into my hair It was a promise A promise that everyone else broke Everyone But you. I won't lie I miss calling you Ian Laughing at lame jokes Listening to John Mayer on buses headed to paradise Chasing each other through the woods Sleeping in your sweatshirts Only worrying if my hair really looked okay Because it always did to you No matter what. I'll admit I miss how things used to be. But I only miss what happened I don't miss you. I never have I never will And I'm sorry. For that And that we couldn't be who we always believed we were.
Someone just told me my work wasn't worthy of being called poetry. Okay.
Did you find it sad That we went from Watching horror movies at 7am Leaning against each other And hiding smiles To never smiles Unless it was sarcasm That was shot down by the other Then mocked by their friends. For a second there you had me I almost trusted you I almost told you why I found this moment special Because I went from tearing my hair out To laughing more often But just as I was about to let you in I got shut out. Everything subsided I started blasting music alone While you criticized every move I made Behind my back. But don't act like I never knew that Because I did Word travels fast between mutual friendships. I got used to being alone again But the only thing that still hurts me Is that I didn't say goodbye that evening Because I thought we'd see each other this way again You didn't say goodbye that evening Because you knew it was going to be over. Oh, how I wish I had the courage To walk up to you Look you in the eye And say "Goodbye" And when you ask why I bothered I'd respond "I never had a reason to before. So goodbye My old painkiller You kept me up way too many nights Wondering What I did That was so wrong."
"When you go, Would you even turn to say, I Don't Love You Like I did, Yesterday."
