I Wanted This

The painful days
The tearful nights
The shameful battles
The endless fights

The impossible hours
The many tears I cried
With no where to go
And no where to hide

The intruding thoughts
No matter where I go
And the guilt I feel
When I cant say no

And at the end of the day, nothing is fixed
And I guess before I asked for this
I didn't know of the painful days I'd endure
And I didn't know what I was doing this for
And I didn't know of all the times I would cry
Or the times I'd feel like wanting to die

And all I wish is that I knew
Everything that i'd go through
And all the hurt I'd cause you

And maybe, I wouldn't have wanted this
