"A girl doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her" Marylin Monroe


I gave you all I had
put my life into your hands
and you ran away with it
the only thing I had left
is now shattered like a mirror

You're intentions were so perfectly clear
to everyone but me
like a window you could see straight through
but I still left it all to you

The promises we made that day
were nothing but lies that sounded
so very convincing
and you seemed so sincere
now I know better then to trust u

I check my phone every minute
hoping that you will call
but I end up in disappointment
yet I still left you all I had

I still lay in bed to scared to sleep
cause every time I close my eyes
I see your face and all the memories
come flooding back
I gave it all to you

but you would never do the same for me
like a game of poker I laid all my cards out
on the table
while you held back everything you had
I left it all to you

but in the end I just got burned.
