I know you’re the furthest thing from perfect for me
Our long runs are short with the finish line only a few steps away
We don’t have a happy ending
You and I weren’t meant to last
But despite all that I can’t stop thinking about you.
Every time I smiled it was because of you.
Joyous thoughts only had your name
You were the shifting wind of my day and determined its up or down
But you didn’t ask for it
You told me it wasn’t what you wanted
Yet I foolishly fell anyways
I practically leaped off the cliffs asking you to catch me
You warned me that your arms were tired,
so I hit the ground.
Now I’m here lying and everything hurts
I don’t want to move or open my eyes
because then I’ll see you looking at me
telling me you told me so
and why didn’t I listen.
