I got my heart broken yesterday
By the guy who told me he would stay
He blamed it on me
Told me I’m too needy
But his wants and needs proved him to be greedy.
I turned my head
And bit my tongue
He shot through my heart with a gun.
I held onto the past
And made so many excuses
For him, my heart spread vast
The pain that the thought of him induces.
I didn’t know him anymore
He treated me like a chore
As I fell to the floor
This pain, unable to ignore.
I got my heart broken the day before last
My trust was surpassed.
He’s on my mind
His face, his eyes
The mouth I once kissed
He now uses it for lies.
You said you would stay
That you'd never end it this way
My heart once bloomed like flowers in May
Now my pain is on display.
I gave you my all
You once gave me yours too
I did everything right
And your interest still flew.
I took you back once, and again and again
But this cycle, my tears, must come to an end.
I’m growing and changing and trying my best
The sound of your voice now tightens my chest.
What was butterflies has evolved to flames
Your words cut deep
Like a knife in my veins.
What we had will never again be
After the way you treated me
The time I once wasted on you
Has floated away like a fish in the sea.
You thanked me for understanding
You told me ‘Be Good’
My pain remains misunderstood.
I hope you’re happy
I pray that you’re fine
Now that our hearts no longer align.
If you find someone else
Please treat her right
Don't let her cry herself to sleep at night
Or find any excuse to start a fight.
Be gentle and kind
Admire her like art
In your mind
Please always keep my heart.
