This Is Harder Than I Want It To Be


In my rampage to find a heart

I found that yours

Is all locked up

How can this be?

I miss out on there



A "you and me?"

'Cause something tells me

This is over

I pick up my pace

And let you go about your way

This is not right

How can it be

That God is doing this to me?

Think I won't be happy after all

I've just stopped trying

There won't be another

I can't get over you

I will not want to

How can I ever?

I love you just a tad



When this is over

And you are gone

You'll stay being the topic

If I am right

I may never get into your heart

And that's what's making this wrong

I'm not asking for sympathy

Just a little empathy

But knowing I can't be related to

Just makes your empathy

__out of the question

So carry on

Run along now and play

Your mind games on my heart

Like you do everyday

I don't mind

I like being used because of my heart

It's big enough to destroy

So make me your toy

Even I will enjoy

This growing pain

In my own secret way

I will love you all the way

Every night

Every day

By the time you read this

I will be out of your way

But I'd still be game

I wouldn't mind the wait
