Sticks & stones, are hard on bones, aimed with angry art.
Words can sting like anything, but silence breaks the heart.
We are all guilty of saving old messages
from someone who became really special in our lives.
& going to familiar places that gives us that
small twinge in our hearts & smiles on our faces.
Itís one of the most bittersweet feelings
ever because every time that person crosses our minds.
We remember the instances when we were happy & complete.
You used to give me butterflies.
Now you give me the urge to kick you in the balls.
I don't need some elaborate apology.
I don't need you to play me our song.
I don't need you to wait outside my class with a dozen roses.
I just need you to tell me simply that you're sorry.
& that you need me as much as I need you.
I forgave you so many times for doing me wrong,
but this time I just cant do it anymore,
of course I love you, but that's not enough anymore.
Realize now that when your heart breaks,
you got to fight like hell to make sure your still alive.
Because you are, & that pain you feel?
That's life, the confusion & fear?
That's there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, & that something is worth fighting for.
No one deserves to be treated that way.
So even if you love him with your entire heart,
with every fiber of your being,
with so much passion that it hurts to think about it,
you need to forget what you want & remember what you deserve.
I don't how you feel, but my heart is breaking,
& I don't know about you, but it hurts me to breathe.
& I don't really know how you're doing, but I couldn't seem to get out of bed today.
You know that moment that comes when the last tear falls?
The one when you realize that your worst fears have come
to light & youíre still breathing?
Never forget the moment you look into the mirror.
& into your red eyes & see that you
arenít broken , weak or lost at all.
You are thin skin over steel.
Too often we don't realize what we have until it's gone.
Too often we're too stubborn to say, "I'm sorry, I was wrong."
Too often it seems we hurt the ones closest to our hearts,
& we let the most foolish things tear us apart.
I firmly believe all my problems would be
solved if you would just Love me again.
You said you didn't even see the breakup coming.
But me & everyone else did.
I think that's what bothers me the most.
That you didn't even try to put the pieces back together.
You just didn't care enough to even realize they were broken.
I wonít fight to stay when all you want for me to do is leave.
Iím not going to miss you when you donít miss me.
Iím not going to care when you donít at all.
Iím not going to try anymore.
Youíve kept my hopes up for much too long.
Itís time I start thinking about myself again & not you.
Itís time for me to be strong, itís time I let you go.
It's about time I get to be happy, itís about time I leave you alone.
Everyone has that relationship that they never quite get over.
No matter what happens in between, when you're together it's like nothing has changed.
Deep down, you both know you're supposed to be together, but you just can't seem to make it work.
I'm just wondering why we're still standing here.
I'm crying, you're lying & our worlds are falling apart at our feet.
We're clinging onto the edge of the end - when we really just need to let go & let our hearts mend.
All we have left is broken promises and broken hearts.
If I had known this was the end,
I'm not sure I would have wanted to start.
Because I remember what it's like to have love, & have it taken away.
So do your Heart a favor, turn around & leave.
It may not be what you want but its what you need.
