Don’t mess with my heart.
Don’t tell me that you will always be here for me,
but then show me the complete opposite.

It messes with my head.
It makes me think that there's something wrong with ME
instead of you.
I look at myself and I say
“What’s wrong with me?”

I bend over backwards trying.
I try everything.
You just don’t have the guts to tell me the truth,
because you can’t look into these eyes,
These eyes that cry
and tell me that you lied to me.

You failed me.
You messed with me.
You betrayed me.
And you thought that I would let go;
as easily as you did.

You can’t face me because you'll just come to the reality
that you can’t handle yourself.
You're not good enough,
and you're too inconfident in yourself to admit it.

So don’t mess with my heart.
Tell me straight out when you get the chance.
Don’t tell me that you'll be thinking of me
because it just gets my hopes up
and then I crash harder.

Don’t leave me hanging.
Don’t leave me guessing.
Don’t walk away thinking that you have left nothing behind.
Because you left me.

You left me behind
to watch you walk in peace
I’m here struggling to find answers.
Get some backbone
and maybe a little self esteem and tell me the truth.

Even if it’s painful I can take it
because it can’t be worse than what I’m already feeling.
You haven't broken me,
I’m not mad.
I can’t be mad anymore

Because I am only grateful
that I have someone else.
I have someone that is there for me,
and that will never let me down.
And they are my friends.
