Everything is falling apart
Piece by painful piece
The truth catching up to me, while the lies are telling me to keep running
‘He doesn’t care, he never did’
I keep telling myself, it was there. There was something
Lies, it’s all a lie.
It hit me too hard this time
There is nothing I can tell myself to soften the blow
A punch in the face every time
‘He doesn’t like you. He never has. He never will.’
I finally lost the race.
The race where I was just ahead of truth and it won this time
The wall of lies tumbling down like an avalanche of lost dreams and half-hearted wishes
It was all a lie
And it took one girl to make me see
It took one to make the wall finally come down
I must bring myself to say ‘Thank you’
The hurt can finally subside
It won’t keep coming back with each lie I tell myself
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do now, don’t know what to believe
Wish I would have never started this race
It would have never ended like this either, as well as not started
He would have never been ‘the one’ in my mind
And I would have never been hurt like this
But to say that I could not have started this, would have been a lie
Lies, it’s always a lie.

There's always that someone who you swear is the one, when it really turns out you may have just been lying to yourself.
