Break up this fight
Between my head and my heart
Before it ends somewhere
That I wouldn’t know where to start
I can’t believe I let you in
My emotional gates
It was so hard
To let my hair down
I was so afraid
And yet again
I was stupid
For believing that we could do this
Can’t explain the who
Or what I was trying to believe
The thought was so conceived
Last time I saw you
You looked at me with careful eyes
But they are just judgments hidden
On the inside
I felt something else
Somewhere in your face
The feeling of regret
With no self respect
Then I get it
That’s all I see
Don’t you worry
About me
I don’t need it
At least not right now
My independence hates you
And so does my heart
My head says let go
But I’d rather not
Your face screams
I don’t need it right now
I’ll find a way
To get my smile back
