When You Said I Love You

What if every time you said "Don't leave"
You meant, "hold on forever"
What if when you claimed you wouldn't hurt me,
You meant never.

What if when you always said "You're my everything"
You meant, "I'd die without you"
What if when you asked for a family
You meant, "We'll make it through"

What if when you said "I'm not like him"
You meant "I love you"
What about when you said "I miss you"
And I said it too?

What if every time you said "I love you"
you meant it?

Then would we still end up
Just like you promised?
Because now I'm all alone
With just the words left in my head.
