No matter where you are in the world, you are always looking at the same stars as someone else.

I gave you my heart
I gave you my soul
I gave you my life
And what did you give me?
I gave you my all
I gave you all I possessed
I gave you my very being
And what did you give me?
I thought we had an agreement
I give you my heart
you give me yours
I give you my soul
you give me yours
I give you my life
you give me yours.
So where are they?
Where is your heart?
Your soul?
Your life?
You took mine
But didn’t give me yours
If you don’t give me yours
Then I need mine back
I need mine back because I need something to call mine
Something to call mine and not yours.
I want my heart
my soul
my life
If you don’t give them willingly
I’ll take them back.
I’m proud
I’m capable
I thought we had something
I guess we don’t
Your loss
I don’t you need you
Apparently you don’t need me
So I’ll take my heart, soul, and life back.

I decided someone might as well stand up for themselves and be a proud young woman to show that we still exist and we don't melt for a man that walks into our lives
