You Got Away

I wanted you, I wanted us,

But this relationship I couldn't trust.

I loved the passion in your eyes,

I loved the fire behind your lies.

I loved it when your heart would beat,

Underneath my hands it leaped.

It thumped "for me" you used to say,

"Until," you said, " it got away,"

My eyes would fall, my smile fade.

"This will end," I said, afraid.

You looked into my tear-stained eyes,

You held me there, despite my cries.

You whispered in my ear, " This isn't me, I wasn't here,"
We hid our hearts behind our fight,

We wanted to prove the other right.
