The Way I Love You
By: Michelle B.

You’re perfect in every way
That’s what all of my friends would say
You said exactly what I wanted to hear
With you, I knew I had nothing to fear

When I opened up my heart
I knew that that would be the start
I felt amazing when I was with you
And to achieve this, saying “Hello Beautiful,” was all you had to do

I was so in love with what we had
The thought of losing you made me indescribably sad
But now I’ve lost you and I’m freaking out
I’ve filled my head with doubt after doubt
The rush I got when I was with you was of a totally different kind
If only I could have been quicker to make up mind

You made me feel so unbelievable
The thought of losing you was simply not conceivable
When I was with you, I didn’t care
But I guess having you all to my self just wasn’t fair

You were exactly what I had wished for
But apparently, you wanted more
I never saw that in any lie
Why couldn’t you have simply just told me good bye
But no, instead you lead me on
Playing me like a little pawn

Finally I realized you never meant what you said
You just wanted to get into my head
The idea that you would love me forever
And that finally, we could be together
I was so blinded by what was in store
I could never have asked for anything more

Even though I couldn’t take those feelings back
I’ve finally got my life back on track
But I just want you to know
That I am not quite ready to let you go

The love I felt for you was like no other
It was more than what’s between a sister and a brother
It was, and still is something irreplaceable
But apparently for you, the feeling was completely erasable
Or maybe it was never there at all
Maybe you just wanted to watch me fall

Never once were you even confronted
But congratulations, you got what you wanted
Now that it is over and done,
Looking back, I guess you’ve won
I’m out of your life and can’t ever come back
I’ve got up my wall and am ready for attack

In everything you say and every time you flirt
You know what to do to make it hurt
But I am tired of all this happening to me
Why can’t we just let it be?

I never could understand why
The thought of you would always make me cry
But then I realized one simple thing,
I needed this to be more than just a fling
I had fallen in love with you
And no one else would ever do

I’m still in love with you, that I know
I don’t want to ever have to let you go
I mean I want to just get over it
But I can’t bring myself to quit
Not after everything that we have been through
I guess that’s just the way I love you
