Maybe

My mascara is running
My eyes are red
My stomach is upside down
My heart is dead
My brain is lost
My knees have grown week
I fall to the floor unable to speak
You call me up sounding all fun
But when I tell you I love you
You announce its done
You said we would be together through thick and thin
Then why oh why are we at the end?

Damn I loved you
And I thought you loved me
I should have known all along
Why couldn't I see?
Maybe it was that look I thought I saw in your eyes
Maybe it was when you would try to get me the grand prize
Maybe it was your charm
Maybe it was your looks
God I bet you read me like a book
You knew I was look for someone to hold
And someone to love me
Without being told
And I bet that you could see too
How easily I could fall for you

So now, I'll fix my mascara
I'll dry my eyes
I'll stand up tall
And shall not cry
Because now I know that you never loved me
And now I can move on
I can be free
