You do… do you?
Oh god how much hurt a lie can do
My mind was torn everytime I spoke those words
“No, I don’t love you”
What I meant was “I can’t love you”
It was said with a sense of paradox too
Because it was exactly what I wanted to do.
Exactly what I ‘needed’ to do
In order to extract the key to your heart
And allow me to love you.
Alright alright alright yes I loved you
I had to hide it and it hurt
But what else was I to do?
You flew from those with love on their; “To do”
But I wouldn’t have that be me
Oh no… oh no damn you.
At first it seemed to work with you
I still uncovered your feelings
But fixing them I was not in a position to do
Yet there was nothing I wanted more to do!
Oh God knows I wanted to
God knows I tried to help you
You love me too do you?
I was so sure…
Really? Really? You do?
You do? Do you? You do?
I remember you, do you remember me?
Do you? You do? Do you?
You don’t… Do you.
