How It Is

I came to destroy this place.
I came because I promised my brother
An eternity of misery.
I turned my emotions off
And lived life the easy way.
But then I met you and you changed all that.

At first I found myself wanting to protect you.
Then I wanted to protect this town,
Because it has always been mine
And I’ve started to feel at home here again.
Ever since I met you, I’ve begun to feel again.
You’ve made me feel…something.

You were my friend when no one else was.
You trusted me and I kept screwing up.
But you need to understand why.
When you chose to see me another way,
Decided I was worth saving,
Something clicked.

Not being able to tell you how I feel,
Knowing you were with another, someone better;
It drove me crazy, and we all know
I do stupid things when that happens.
But I did it all because I WANT YOU.
I will always protect you no matter what.

If I am to regret anything,
It won’t be loving you;
It’ll be trying.
Trying to make you see, and
Giving in to what I want,
If you decide you never want anything to do with me.

I can’t lose you.
I love you.
