When we’re together
I forget everything for awhile
I feel happy, at peace 
Until we’ve parted once more
Then I remember that feeling 
Of being stood up, repeatedly
Whether or not it was intentional
That sinking, sickening feeling
That I wasn’t important enough 
To show up
Isn’t it weird that we never argue?
Hate to think I’m too tired to fight for us. 

Sometimes I feel like I’m not a priority 
Deep down, I know I shouldn’t be 
I don’t wish to put words in your mouth
Or speak on your behalf
So I’ll speak for myself
I want to focus on my life and career
And being in a relationship
I wouldn’t be able to give you
The attention you deserve 
That’s not fair to either one of us
Isn’t it weird that we never argue?
Maybe I’m too tired to fight for us. 

I remember there was a time
When butterflies roamed my belly
Every time I saw you
Now they’ve turned into bees
Stinging my insides
Making me feel sick
How do you start a conversation 
Of the beginning of the end?
How do you look at someone you love
And tell them, “I’m not happy anymore.”
Isn’t it weird that we never argue?
I know I’m too tired to fight for us.
