Sometimes I wish things could be different,
So I could turn back the pages in my life that I wish had never been written
Between the trial and error
The pain and despair
I need to find a new place to rest my bones.

The heartache worsens as I hear someone calling your name
You were the only thing in this town that kept me sane
A secret love that could not be denied
Now I am forced to walk this road alone without you by my side.

I could never call you mine
Although we would often cross that line
But it was with her that your heart belonged
Always leaving me in the wronged

Now all I have left is the memory of you
Your face it haunts me, there’s nothing I can do
You love her but you want me
I cant keep living this way, please set me free

And at the end of the day, when I can’t take much more
You whispering words of assurance come knocking on my door
I’m all tied up, my hands and feet are bound
I can’t move on knowing your memory will always be around.

Don’t worry about me, I’ll find the broken pieces
I’ll try to place them together, as the thought of you ceases
I’ll just take it day by day, and hold my head high when I’m really not okay
Knowing that is my heart is where you will forever stay.

I know what you mean. unrequitted love is the worst, but it happens to everyone. But somehow, that fact doesn't make it hurt any less, at least not for me. Very well written. :)
