Delicately, softly now,
Trace the scars of my life.
It may hurt a little bit,
But pain is permanent and so is the strife.
Irregardlessly toss my love away,
With uncaring hands.
I cannot forgive you for what you’ve done,
The news seems to have spread to even distant lands.
Please, stop this nonsense.
You cannot expect the world to be yours.
Some days I feel like you’ve been lost to vain,
But others I feel your goodness inside.
Why do you do this to yourself?
Why can’t you see?
All the love I’d had for you
Has been carelessly drained from me.
So how beautiful is she?
The girl you’ve got under your spell now?
I hope she understands you better than I,
For I seem to not know how
To please you now.
What is it you want from me?
Let me tell you, I feel like crying.
But the tears seem to be stuck in my chest.
Right around where my heart used to be beating
For you, my love, for you.
