I was guarded

Before  you

Trusted no one

Before you,

My heart was hidden from the world.

--

I was guarded

When we met

I didn't trust you

When we met,

But my heart could sense the connection.

--

I was guarded

When you asked me out

Was told not to trust you

When you asked me out,

But I couldn't help from smiling.

--

I thought I'd give you a chance

And we got closer

I loved being around you

And we got closer,

We became inseperable, and I was okay with that.

--

I let my guard down

When you told me you loved me

I replied the same

When you told me you loved me,

And everything was right in the world.

--

We talked and laughed

And were always together

You talked of marriage

And always being together,

I was happy and I knew I could trust you.

--

I let you touch me

When I loved you

I let you have me

When I loved you,

And I was sure we were meant to be.

--

I gave myself to you

Heart, Body, and Soul

I trusted myself with you

Heart, Body, and Soul,

You were luckier than you knew, my trust is hard to gain.

--

I missed you

You never called back

I worried about you

You never called back,

But I knew you had some good excuse.

--

You gave me excuses

But I'm not that stupid

You told me lies

I'm not that stupid,

I didn't know what to do, you'd never treated me like that before.

--

I couldn't take it anymore

So I ended it

I started hating you

So I ended it,

And now, every day, I am forced to endure seeing you with her.

--

I was guarded

And I am again

I trust no one

And never should have.
