I miss who I thought you were.

I could wish a million things but they would just vanish into thin air

Could put on a fake smile and pretend I never did care

I could write a million letters and mail them to you

But no matter what you say it will never take away what you did

I could cry a thousand tears and wake up stronger

But I’ll never be strong enough to accept the truth

That I’ll never be able to look at you the same any longer

Your actions turned my heart black and blue

You could turn around from you mistakes

And swear you'll never get that deep

But one false step is all it takes

Because we both know words are cheap

Sitting here now it’s hard to recall

What about you was so perfect after all

If this is the person you really were

Then I never wanted you, you’re all hers

This probably is sounding rather mean

But sometimes that’s what’s needed to cut clean

A bad habit was all you really were

It wasn't worth it in the end, that I'm sure

I realize now everything you said was a show

An idiot I was to fall for it, now I know

You always hear about those stupid girls who fall

For a guy who is cute but never calls

I thought that it couldn’t be that way with you

That if I was in that position I’d know what to do

But here I stand in the aftermath of our storm

With my heart in my hands all torn

I guess I’m not as smart as I thought.
