I want to tell you the truth, be real for a moment.

I’ve made a big mistake and I’m trying to learn from it.

See, what happened was I fell into love with a boy.

But this boy, he had a game he played, a ploy.

He’d make you need him, pretend he needed you too.

Then he’d softly whisper into my ear, “I love you.”

What I didn’t notice was the lie that curled his tongue.

And as soon as I felt it back, he started to run.

I couldn’t keep up, couldn’t match this boy’s pace.

He ran away from love, like he was running a race.

Took my heart with him as he journeyed away from me.

Left me breathless and weepy on my knees.

All I wanted was to be loved, and to love someone.

But I learned the hard way, it can’t really be done.

So I’ll be honest with you now, before you fall too.

That loving me isn’t a wise idea, I haven’t a clue.

I have no knowledge except heart break, you see.

And unfortunately, I don’t think we could ever be.

We’ll be dysfunctional - all wrong for one another.

So before you start to try, why bother?

Our love will just end in chaos, like all the rest.

We’re nothing special, won’t pass the test.

In this moment of honesty, I spoke too much, too soon.

I do that a lot; I can’t help but to swoon.

You’ll leave, run away just like he before you did.

I realize now that all this, I shouldn’t have said.
