I get it now

I get it now

I thought I had it

All of your love

But I didn't

When push came to shove



I thought I had it then

I get it now

I get why you look at me that strange way

With that face inscribed with pain from a time

When I could laugh with you and cry and say

I love you. Now, my love is a crime



Tossed out


And you wonder why

I'm a little annoyed

I get it now

We'll never be the same

You've moved on

I'm stuck on the pain

Literally, figuritively you're leaving me now

We had it all once

But I get it now.
