I’ll never choose him over you,

I promise you, I swear,

Because I realize in my heart, you’ve been the one who’s there.

I’ll never choose him over you because I’ve done it before,

And you’re the one who picked the pieces shattered on the floor.

I’ll never choose him over you, even if you hurt me, too,

I’m just hoping that someday you can see my point of view.

I know that it’s surprising to hear me say these things,

But in all of me you’re rising through every joy you bring.

Today—is not a mystery; I don’t love him anymore,

At last! It’s just now history that I once chose him before.

I’ll never choose him over you—

Because of what you taught me best,

And I guess I am too good to be settling for less.

Forgive me for forgetting that you’re feelings mattered, too,

And for all the nights I craved him, instead of missing you.

But today those things are different I finally have learned,

How lovely is to love and have you love me in return.

And if I ever choose him over you I’d be literally insane,

Because after loving you—

Choosing him, will never be the same.
