you could of

You could have just told me the truth instead of what you said
How you said your brother was dead
How you missed him and you missed me
And how you had to say we could not be

You could have just told me the truth instead of what you had to say
How you could not stand another day
How you wanted me and you couldn't
And how you said death could save you, and we both know it wouldn't

I heard the gun shot and I fell to the floor
I laid in the library, I cried and cried
I lay there thinking that you died
Only to hear a year later that you lied
I got up and slammed the door

How could you do that to me?
How could you hide that you went to jail
And you know I would help pay bail
Every day I would wait for your letters in the mail
Now how could you think we could ever be?

You had to lie and say death was the only way for us to be together?
I was almost convinced to kill myself in 8th grade
I only wore black and hid the cuts I made
You made cuts too, but yours were not of blade
You said we could be with each other forever!

Just to hear of you after a year in jail
October 3rd was when you left that place
And you give me a phone call and try to show me your face
You made me feel like I was a disgrace
The pain was like Jesus and his hands stabbed with nail

I can't be with you anymore
You put me through hell just to say your still in love next year
How can you think it's ok that you made me think my blood needed to smear?
I hear your voice and it brings back my millions of tears
You put me through rough times but I got over it therefore

I have to sadly decline my old love for you since I can't love someone I can't trust

i wrote this because i found out one day that the man i loved was still alive. and that he told me a lie on the day he died.
