This feeling is taking over me
What did I do wrong?
Am I not good enough?
Or do I just no belong
In your picture perfect life,
Where you’re the ideal wife
And I’m just the screwed up one
Who is carrying the knife?

Why does this keep happening?
Am I not good enough for you?
Did you always love me,
Or have I been the gum on your shoe?
When I speak do you hear my voice,
Or is it just a sound?
I am a minor inconvenience,
Bringing you all down.

Why did you have to do this?
I can’t stand how you make me feel.
Did you mean to hurt me?
I hope this time, it’s not for real.
