It's Just "Over"

-

The power your love had over me

Has been completely obliviated

Now I can carry on

Loving no one

In an upcoming Christmas season

Completely alone

And in dire need of a "some one"

As I escape my emotions

__I run into a wall, along the way

Surrounded by pain

__in the foreground

____and in the background

Suffering

__everywhere I go

The complexity of my current singlehood

__puts blame on my life

A life where love is lacked

I am moving on from the likes of you

And it costs me my comfort

But this is just life

And so I have to deal with it

The horny bitch

That I cannot have

And so, cannot fuck

Tends not to fallow me anywhere I go

And as I leave a trail of wreckage

Behind me

Everywhere I go

I know I can't bother you

__with how I feel

Or, felt, for you

So I have let you go

You didn't even have to know about it

So I'll never let you know

My feelings never became your business

Which makes me deserting you

__very easy

Because you'll never even notice

Having never known I was here

__waiting for you

I know I need to stop waiting for love

__to ever show up

Because she is never ever ever ever ever

__going to

And that includes you

Even if love

__was never you

Your heart was never meant for mine

So this is my silent "goodbye"

The one I'll never have to vocalize

But will never end
