15. I see you standing here but yet you're so far away

You're an arms reach away from me

but all I want to do is hide away.

Oh why , oh why does it have to end this way?

The memories all come flashing back

I recollect the past,

you and me stretched on the grass.

You promised me a glistering ring and a June wedding.

But here I am dressed a bridesmaid, attending your wedding.

I'm watching you wed another, in June mid-summer

I see you standing here in front of my very eyes ,

it breaks my heart to say I believed your lies.

Now your whispered promises are something of the past.

You +me

We were never meant to last

You were a forbidden fruit and I couldn't resist a piece

but now here I stand regretting the taste.

How could I not? You swept me away

I stand here the ugly duckling and left envying your bride swan

A fake smile I flash at HER inside I'm weeping

your' lo0king at YOUR bride

and I'm still suffering from all your lies.

I'm bruised and broken while you joke and smile at another.

Did I really fall for you? All I feel is used and abused

You are content and I'm left in the dust,

they say love is blind but why am I the one left behind

collecting the pieces of my shattered heart?

I feel humiliated to have believed you, to have loved you

I take a promise here and now

never to give my love to another.

Your so far, oh so far away.
