How could you fall in love with someone like her?
I couldn't believe it when you told me it happened
she had a hold on your heart, and she had a tight grip
nothing could shake that, no falters, no slips
someone like her.... Never thought she'd be the one
To obtain what I wanted, love reciprocated for once
The way you talked about her, so harsh, sometimes bitter
But how you thought of her often, even when you were with her
I don't understand what she did that I'm not
How she did everything wrong but got more than I got
She was never there for you, always wanted it her way
Never bothered to check up, or throw a phone call your way
Didn't you say it seemed to bother her when you had something to share?
...I just don't get it! How you thought that she cared?
I get life isn't fair, I've been told a time or two
I just can't understand how to break through to you.
How do I show you that my love is genuine and true
How can I make you see I'd never do what she did to you
So what, we may bicker, and sometimes we fight
Regardless, it's you who's on my mind at the end of the night
And you say "you care" ...I really want to believe that it's true
But if your heart won't show it, how am I supposed to believe in you?
I guess you don't notice how vulnerable I have become for you
Minus one little thing, there isn't anything I wouldn't say or do.
I gave you my mind, body, and soul... Wishing one day you'd reciprocate
instead I get bitter emptiness; your heart just won't participate.
How could you love her, and not me
You have no idea the times I've cried
Then put on a face, and pretend it's okay, when deep down I'm not alright
I Tell myself that I can handle this and that's it's strictly fun,
I know what you sighed up for and my heart wasn't one.
But I can't just give you my body and let you play house
when I'm hurting deep down and can't figure this out
I wish I didn't feel this way... Maybe then things would be fine
my mind wouldn't panic when I didn't hear from you time to time.
I wouldn't care when you canceled or came over late
I wouldn't be so self-conscious and make so many mistakes
I wouldn't crave your attention and long for your touch
I wouldn't desperately seek your approval so much
I wouldn't mind that you don't care about my interests, or art
...and I'd get It through my head that I will never have your heart
