I put my heart down at your feet a little to quickly now look what love's gotten me

You said

If you could break me down...you would.

If you could rip me up...you would.

You'd place a pretty smile on your lips

and tear out my beating heart.

You said

When I am weak and wanting

you would step a heavey foot onto my outstretched hand

you would laugh at my unfailing love

You said

And now I am a fool

For as you said those retched things

I covered up my ears

I could not bare to hear those horrible truths

and again I am a fool

Wishing wanting you.

And you said you did not want me

You said you would not need me.

You said my heart would break

you said this without words

You said this with your actions

The one thing I could trust in I would not believe

Now I am your fool

You said we could be friends

but how can this suffice for you

when it will never do for me?

I needed you to be here

I needed you to see

but I can not make you

you will not believe

You said that this would happen

You told me you would leave
