One sacrifice was all it took to lose everything i had. I wanted you to show me the way, because you were all i had. But you got lost and i lost myself in you. Just hit the gas because i need out. Just tear me apart because who'd gonna stop you? Just take me by surprise and tell me for once that thats not what your gonna do. No more traffic standing in our way. No more seeing you smile just to lighten my day. When we started to fade, you didnt look at me the same. Detest myself for breaking. Because i want to think that im worth more. The door wasnt closed, it was slammed in my face. Leaving me with no other choice then to walk away and just leave my everything behind. I dont know where im going, but i do know where im coming from. I want to kiss you. I want to fight. I want to scream but nothing comes out. I just want to burn it all down and lie on the the common ground with no feelings stirring in my head.

Because im just a chapter in your life. But to mine, your the whole book.
