I can only do so much and I already feel behind.
In your mind I’m nothing compared to what’s real. 
This built up image of me, I can’t compete with that.
This was made when you didn’t know me,
You had an idea of me,
Which you made up yourself.
How can I live up to those expectations?
It’s a losing battle I’m fighting.
I have no where to run,
Nowhere to hide.
I’m faced with the reality of what I am,
And what you think I am.
I’m scared you’re starting to realise.
Realise I’m not right for you.
Realise you can do better.
Because you can, I’m telling you.
I’d love to have you all to myself,
But you deserve the best.
And I can’t give that to you.
I wish I could,
But I can’t.
It kills me inside having you wait around.
I don’t even know what you’re waiting for,
Because you couldn’t possibly be waiting for me.
I’m torn between who I am,
And who I want to be for you.
Maybe later on it will happen.
When we’ve lived our separate lives.
We might find our way back to each other.
I’m too selfish for this.
I don’t even know myself.
I don’t even love myself.
If I can’t do that,

How am I supposed to love you?
