I Don't Have It In Me

I don't have it in me to love you anymore,
I hope you got that message,
Though I conveyed it the wrong way.
Cause I loved you,
and I gave you all I could. .
You had my heart,
my mind,
my body,
and my soul.
You had my time,
my energy,
my strength,
my sleep.
I gave you everything.
I did all that you asked of me.
Cause I loved you,
and thought you loved me too.
But soon I realized,
that I didn't have the strength ,
to love you anymore.
Because i gave,
and gave,
and gave,
and got nothing back.
Because I gave,
and gave,
and gave,
and got silence back.
Because I gave,
and gave,
and gave,
and got lies back.
Cause I don't have the strength to love you anymore,
and i hope you got that message.
