Greed

By
No matter how hard I try
It will never be enough
Nothing I could ever say
Would repay you for this love.

You were always where ever I needed you.
You were always in my thoughts
You were always so perfect
That you masked even my flaws.

Why do I ignore all the signs?
Why can't I see what you need?
I know that I love you,
but I can't show it through my greed.

I've never given you a hand to hold
I've never been the person you cried out to for light
You have been my lover and my friend
Holding me, protecting me day and night

I've never even tried to prove how much I cared
I never equaled your love
You have been my life my crutch
And I can't love you enough.

You need someone that’s your equal
Someone to share your life
And I am just the leech
That’s the center of your strife.

I admit that I need your love
But it's better if you keep it
It is yours to have for life
And I'm just intermittent.

I’ve never given you a hand to hold
I’ve never been the person you cried out to for light
You have been my lover and my friend
Holding me, protecting me day and night

If you’re asking do I love you
The answer will always be yes.
If you’re asking if I'll stay
Only if it's for the best.

Now I have to leave
You need to keep on living
I'm not a healthy obsession
I’ll just keep on missing your light

Why do I ignore all the signs?
Why can't I see what you need?
I know that I love you,
but I can't show it through my greed.

I’ve never given you a hand to hold
I’ve never been the person you cried out to for light
You have been my lover and my friend
Holding me, protecting me day and night

I can't love you as you deserve
You can find someone better
We will go our separate ways
Because life won't be so had on you
After I'm gone.
